Detail of DP-Lubrificanti second generation biodiesel plant

Rome, 23 December 2016 - Processi Innovativi – the subsidiary dedicated to technology development and industrial applications in the field of green chemistry, part of KT-Kinetics Technology (Maire Tecnimont Group) – and DP-Lubrificanti signed an agreement for the design of plants based on DP-Lubrificanti’s technology for the production of second generation biodiesel. This technology can allow to process used cooking oil, animal fats and by-products of the vegetable oil processing to produce Biodiesel in accordance with the most stringent international standards. Therefore such an innovative technology ensures full sustainability in the production of biodiesel, since it completely avoids exploiting human-edible crops.

Mr. Gaetano Iaquaniello, MD of Processi Innovativi, commented: “We are excited to continue the partnership with DP-Lubrificanti also in the field of second generation biodiesel. This is a further step into the green technology sector for Maire Tecnimont Group”. Mr. Fabrizio Corcos, MD of DP-Lubrificanti, added: “This agreement confirms an alliance with a solid industrial and process partner“.

This agreement follows a previous one recently signed by the two companies, relevant to the installation of a pilot plant to convert Glycerol into Ethanol, based on a process developed by Processi Innovativi, ENEA, SINTEF and DTU (University of Copenhagen) under the European Research Project GRAIL. DP-Lubrificanti is a Biodiesel and Glycerol producer located in Aprilia, south of Rome.
