SRS International understands the steps required to build and maintain a biodiesel plant. From site selection and permitting to producing ASTM D 6751 Fuel, SRS has the capability and the facilities to complete every aspect of your biodiesel plant construction.
While we often dream of immense, sprawling biodiesel refineries, there are a number of practical considerations that can guide you toward selecting the “right” size biodiesel production facility, including :
Appropriate site selection is a critical success factor for any biodiesel project. Among the many considerations for determining where to place your biodiesel plant are :

SRS International provides a huge advantage over other equipment providers :
Because one size does not fit all, SRS application specialists and engineers meet with you to determine what equipment you need to achieve your business plan. Whether it’s high-FFA pretreatment, high-purity methanol recovery, or a complete turnkey system, SRS analyzes all aspects of your requirements to ensure the equipment you select will perform in your environment.
Beyond just determining your equipment needs, SRS is committed to finding ways to make your plant profitable. We continually educate our customers on ways to create additional profit opportunities for their plant. One of the ways to create more profit is to incorporate a glycerin purification system to turn their crude glycerin into profitable technical grade glycerin.

When it’s time to actually install and commission your plant, the bulk of the work is already done. Because of the detailed engineering phase that SRS has already completed for your project, your equipment has already been built to exacting specifications for your facility. Delivered as skid-mounted components with single-point connections for utilities and feeds, actual installation times are measured in days not weeks or months.
SRS aids your installers :
SRS for 25 years has built its success on quality and this is evident in our biodiesel refineries. Our turnkey biodiesel solutions are engineered from the ground up with BQ-9000 in mind. Customers seeking BQ-9000 certification will be glad to find that our equipment, process control technology, and extensive documentation all contribute to you achieving BQ-9000 certification. We already guarantee ASTM compliant biodiesel, and SRS can provide step by step training for all plant staff, along with operating procedures and work instructions that can help your organization attain BQ-9000 certification.
With new cold soak filtration laws, much has changed in the way of ASTM fuel standards. In October 2008, the ASTM revised the ASTM D6751 standard, requiring all finished biodiesel to pass a cold soak filtration test. The test to determine cold soak properties is the ASTM D 7501. This is a standard test method for determination of fuel filter blocking potential of biodiesel (B100) blend stock by cold soak filtration test (CSFT) This new testing requirement was designed to improve the cold weather performance of biodiesel. SRS is well versed to handle your cold soak concerns with a biodiesel distillation system that is second to none.
SRS is committed to a successful plant start-up and operation. To achieve this, extensive resources are leveraged to ensure your plant is operational and your staff is properly trained following installation. First our engineers test and validate that every aspect of your biodiesel refinery is working as designed. Then our staff trains your team in every aspect of plant operation including start-up, shutdown, safety, and troubleshooting. Only after your team is properly trained do we turn over operation to your staff. After installation and training SRS can remote connect to your control system and provide additional support if needed – we see what you see so we are never more than a phone call away from supporting your every need.
SRS also offers a comprehensive set of plant management services including onsite staffing and support should you need additional services after installation and training. Don’t let lack of availability of qualified local staff hold up your project – SRS can provide short and long term placement of qualified staff from plant managers, lab technicians, and a wide range of engineering support. We can customize a solution that fits your needs.
At SRS we understand that even small plants think big and change is a way of life. That is why we take current and future plans into consideration as we design your biodiesel refinery. Not only is SRS’s technology expandable in size, we also enable you to expand your ability to process new and emerging feedstocks. Whether you have a killer opportunity to acquire a high-FFA feedstock, or are dealing with water, solids, or other special needs, offers a wide range of pretreatment capabilities to address nearly any feedstock opportunity you may have.
So let SRS International design a custom system for you that leverages your vision with our strengths.
