Biodiesel and glycerin are produced during the production of biodiesel, and are stored and filled in the biodiesel handling area prior to dispatch.

The SITRANS process instruments and SIWAREX weighing technology families guarantee exact quantity measurements for billing customers. Siemens drive technology guarantees exact conveyance and dosing processes. As part of TIA, the automation and the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system are completely integrated via PROFIBUS.
