METHYL ESTER

From natural raw materials, which is used as an ingredient in biodiesel as alternative chemicals

Methyl ester is defined as mono-alkyl esters of long chain fatty acids derived from vegetable oils or animal fats which conform to specifications prescribed by the Department of Energy Business, the Ministry of Energy. Methyl ester is made through a chemical process called trans-esterification which converts oils and fats of natural origin into methyl esters.

Methyl ester, which is commonly known as pure biodiesel fuel or “B100”, is a clean burning renewable fuel made from natural plant oil such as palm oil, rape oil, soy bean oil, etc. Methyl ester is intended to be used as a replacement for petroleum diesel or it can be blended with petroleum diesel fuel in any proportion, so called, “Biodiesel” and is generally regarded as being more environmentally friendly.
