By Rayeman Elements Inc. | June 13, 2017

Rayeman Elements Inc. is pleased to announce that it has diversified its business model and created a Biofuels Division to provide patented and proven technology for the production of biodiesel colocated with ethanol plants. As a part of this new endeavor, Rayeman Elements has selected top engineering firm, Saola Energy LLC, to provide engineering and design for the biodiesel technology, giving companies interested in building a biodiesel plant their best option.

In addition to the use of this technology, Rayeman Elements’ and Saola Energy’s primary focus will be to utilize a proven enzymatic biodiesel process. These state-of-the-art facilities will include standard methanol recovery and distillation units as part of the package offering. A standard plant size offering will be a 2 million gallons per year production design. However, customized plant size designs will be accommodated per customer requests.

In searching for a partner to work with them on this process, Samantha Western, President of Rayeman Elements said, “Saola Energy was the clear choice for design and engineering work regarding the biodiesel and co-location technology, due to their extensive experience in the arena. We couldn’t be more pleased about our partnership with everyone at Saola and believe together, we will bring the change and solutions needed to the industry.”

Adam Belyamani, chief operating officer of Saola Energy, said, “We were thrilled when we received the call from Rayeman Elements asking to provide the engineering design for their new technology. Saola Energy has worked with Rayeman Elements on projects in the past, and we are pleased to provide our biodiesel expertise in conjunction with their collocation technology.”

This unique technology will help ethanol plants diversify their product offerings, allowing them to gain a significant advantage by increasing the value of their corn oil stream while expanding their advanced biofuels offerings.
