Green Diesel
Biodiesel (a.k.a. Renewable Diesel, Green Diesel) consists of the simple alkyl esters of fatty acids (fatty acid methyl esters or FAME) found in vegetable oils, algae, animal fats, and recycled cooking oils. This renewable fuel exhibits performance generally comparable to that of conventional diesel in compression ignition (diesel) engines, while reducing engine emissions of particulates, hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide.

Updated Reports Examining Biodiesel Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Biodiesel manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Biodiesel process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Biodiesel production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
