Experiences in the construction and operation of a biodiesel pilot plant in Tabasco; Experiencias en la construccion y operacion de una planta piloto de biodiesel en Tabasco

Abstract

Initiating the development of a project that has as final goal the construction of a plant at pilot level to produce bio combustible, represent always a challenge. First, for the little experience that we could have in the construction, and another one, related to the selection of the equipment or materials for its construction, since one must have quality standards in the materials and it tends to happen that in occasions they are not in the market because of its specialization. In this work the authors present their experiences in the design and construction of the first pilot plant for production of biodiesel in the state of Tabasco, as well as in the use of the bio-fuel in the buses and emergency generating units where the biodiesel has tried on. The pilot plant for biodiesel is designed to produce 400 liters per hour, each batch, has a storage capacity of 2400 liters and counts with a system of filters and washing tank with water to eliminate water and solid matters that are contaminating the process. For the biodiesel production the methoxide is used, that is a mixture of sodium hydroxide and methanol alcohol so that it reacts with the oil  More>>

For the biodiesel production the methoxide is used, that is a mixture of sodium hydroxide and methanol alcohol so that it reacts with the oil and forms the biodiesel. The plant is working with used vegetal oil as raw material, same that is collected from the hotels and restaurants of the zone. The critics have served to improve the process, because sometimes not everything has been written on the biodiesel. This work is a joint project between the union of the private initiative (DG Group) and the Universidad Tecnologica de Tabasco. [Spanish] El iniciarse en el desarrollo de un proyecto que tenga como final la construccion de una planta a nivel piloto para fabricar biocombustible, siempre representa un reto. Primero, por la poca experiencia que pudieramos tener en la construccion, y otra, en lo que es la seleccion del equipo o material para su construccion, ya que se debe contar con estandares de calidad en los materiales y suele suceder que en ocasiones no se encuentren en el mercado por su especializacion. En este trabajo los autores su experiencia en el diseno y construccion de la primera planta piloto para produccion de biodiesel en el estado de Tabasco, asi como en el uso del biocombustible en los autobuses y plantas de emergencia donde se ha probado el biodiesel. La planta piloto para biodiesel esta disenada para producir 400 litros por hora, cada Bach, tiene una capacidad de almacenamiento de 2400 litros y cuenta con un sistema de filtros y tanque de lavado con agua para eliminar agua y materias solidas que esten contaminando el proceso. Para la produccion del biodiesel se utiliza metoxido, que es una mezcla de hidroxido de sodio y alcohol metanol para que reaccione con el aceite y se forme el biodiesel. La planta se encuentra trabajando con aceite vegetal usado como materia prima, mismo que se recolecta de los hoteles y restaurantes de la zona. Las criticas han servido para ir mejorando el proceso, pues en ocasiones no todo se ha escrito sobre el biodiesel. Este trabajo es el producto conjunto entre la union de la iniciativa privada (Grupo DG) y la Universidad Tecnologica de Tabasco.}
