Umnotho Range

Overview

One of our most popular product ranges, the Umnotho is the best entry level commercial Biodiesel processor with low capital cost and relatively low footprint making it easy to deploy and start realizing quick returns.

The Umnotho is factory built and is delivered as a turnkey system configured according to customers’ requirements. The plant operator therefore has just one vendor, providing their biodiesel processing equipment. Operator training, supervision of connection to facility (at delivery), and start-up (commissioning run) of the Umnotho are in addition to the sales price. Given its compact and modular design, the Umnotho can be re-located if necessary and can at any time be expanded to meet a changing requirement.
The processing equipment is able to use various cold and hot pressed fresh vegetable oils (some requiring pre-treatment), and waste vegetable oil (WVO) as feedstock. Using the specified quantity and quality of input materials (feedstock, alcohol, and caustic) and following processing instructions, the plant operator/owner will achieve biodiesel which complies with the South Africa's SANS 1935, EU biodiesel standard EN 14214, as well as with other convention al international standards like ASTM D6751. With most feedstocks, a transesterification grade of > 98 % and consistent product quality will be reached.
