The HERO BX flagship biodiesel plant is equipped with Desmet Ballestra-designed continuous flow technology, the global leader in biodiesel technology with more than 90 plants to its credit worldwide.
HERO BX operations feature a proprietary filtration system, a pre-treatment facility and fatty acid stripper that together allow for utilization of multiple feedstocks, as economics and quality specifications dictate. The flexibility with regard to feedstock allows HERO BX to serve needs of clients more effectively than biodiesel plants with economics that are directly tied to price and availability of a single feedstock.
