Gearing up in Thailand

Distillation column fabrication in progress
With the current slowdown in the regional market marked by the lack of new capacity investments, Thailand stands out in terms of business activities. JJ-Lurgi in Thailand has received numerous enquiries about its technology to distill crude glycerine into pharmaceutical grade glycerine.
Traditionally, most biodiesel producers in Thailand would stop at producing crude glycerine as a by-product of biodiesel. For the past year, however, the JJ-Lurgi team has observed an increase in demand for distilled glycerine. It has since secured a contract to deliver a 100 TPD Glycerine Distillation and Bleaching plant for one of the largest glycerine manufacturers in Bangkok, Thailand. The project is expected to be delivered by the end of 2016.
