ENSEL biodiesel process, to be tested in India, should make cheaper biofuel
New Century president William Summers said that ENSEL will allow less expensive unrefined oils to be used and that the process will generate no waste water. And ENSEL allows biodiesel producers to mix either ethanol or methanol with the veggie oil to make biodiesel. This, along with the fact that ENSEL converts the glycerin byproduct into diesel fuel oxygenates, means that ENSEL biodiesel will be about 20 to 25 percent cheaper to make than biodiesel made using current production methods, Summers said. New Century will open an ENSEL plant in India soon to test various feedstocks.
