The feedstock can be virtually any vegetable oil or animal fat. The
Mcgyan ® process can convert all known waste oils or alternative
renewable oils (e.g. algae oil) to biodiesel in seconds.
Insensitive to free fatty acid and water content of the feedstocks.
Current economic models show that more than
88% of the cost of biodiesel production is attributed to the
cost of refined vegetable oils, such as soybean or canola
oil. Alternative sources of oil, algae for example, have
significantly greater annual production capacity per acre
than traditional biodiesel crops and can be farmed on low
quality land. Alternative oils typically contain high FFA
content, which is problematic for the traditional process but
are easily converted to biodiesel with the Mcgyan® process.
