IMERYS is the world leader in mineral-based specialties for industry, delivering  high value-added, functional solutions to a great number of sectors. IMERYS Filtration is the largest global supplier of engineered mineral products for filtration. Derived from diatomite and perlite, natural raw materials possessing unusually light density, chemical inertness, high surface area and intricate structure, IMERYS Filter Aids have been used for the filtration of vegetable oils, oleochemichals and biodiesel for decades.

IMERYS filtration has developed a range of speciality adsorbents specific for biodiesel industry –  CynerSorb™ – engineered to increase filtration performance, without compromising on adsorption characteristics. Designed using a diatomite filter aid “base”, it has all the filtration characteristics of a diatomite. However, IMERYS has successfully surface-engineered the individual diatomite particles so they also have the necessary adsorption functionality.

The result – an adsorbent that reduces/removes the need for additional filter aid.  Not only does this simplify the filtration process, but the reduction of powder dosage means longer filter runs, less spent filtrer cake, lower oil losses and a total cost reduction. CynerSorb™  can also be used as a pre-treatment solution to allow usage of multiple or lower quality feedstocks.

Agrisoma is meeting the growing global demand for sustainably sourced, renewable biofuels with Carinata, a non-food crop designed for producing low GHG fuels. Over the last 5 years, Agrisoma has established commercial production programs for Carinata in North and South America and are rapidly expanding globally to meet the demand for low GHG fuels.

Two of the strongest driving factors behind how Agrisoma develops our Carinata are sustainability and scalability.  Carinata was developed with the farmer, the fuel producer, and everyone in between in mind. On the farm side, Carinata fits seamlessly into existing cropping rotation strategies. Carinata is primarily grown as a winter or cover crop.  This has the dual benefit of improving soil quality and not diverting land from the production of food (a factor called indirect land use change, or iLUC), which has been a major inhibitor in the biofuel industry.  As a feedstock for biofuel production, Carinata oil is very sustainably produced product with a very low GHG emissions profile.

Carinata oil can be efficiently converted to HVO. It outperforms its fossil fuel counterparts in efficiency, it burns cleaner and reduces wear and tear on an engine block.  Carinata Biojet fuel is more energy dense than its fossil fuel counterpart. This increased efficiency also lowers fuel consumption. Additionally, due to its high percentage of long carbon chains Carinata oil is ideal for many other industrial applications, such as high performance lubricants and polymer coatings.



Renewable Energy Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: REGI) is a leading provider of cleaner, lower carbon intensity products and services. We are an international producer of biomass-based diesel, a developer of renewable chemicals and are North America’s largest producer of advanced biofuel. REG utilizes an integrated procurement, distribution, and logistics network to convert natural fats, oils, greases, and sugars into lower carbon intensity products. With 14 active biorefineries, a feedstock processing facility, research and development capabilities and a diverse and growing intellectual property portfolio, REG is committed to being a long-term leader in bio-based fuel and chemicals.
