The automotive industry requires biodiesel with a low phosphorus content. This is because the phospholipids contained in crude oil may impair the effectiveness of catalytic converter systems. They may lead to pollutants and residues in tanks, filters, pistons, fuel injectors and valves. With JELUCEL®, the German company JELU-WERK offers an eco-friendly and economic filter cellulose for effective removal of phospholipids. This enables biodiesel manufacturers to meet the high demands set by the automotive industry.
Before an edible oil lands on supermarket shelves, it runs through several process steps to achieve the desired quality. Undesirable components such as suspended solid particles, water and waxes are filtered out of the oil. This is done using filter aids in precoat filtration. With JELUCEL®, JELU-WERK offers a renewable filter aid that has ecological and economic advantages for edible oil filtration.
Bevor ein Speiseöl in den Supermarktregalen landet, durchläuft es diverse Prozessschritte, um die gewünschte Qualität zu erzielen. Unerwünschte Bestandteile wie Trubstoffe, Wasser und Wachse werden aus dem Öl herausgefiltert. Dabei kommen Filterhilfsmittel in der Anschwemmfiltration zum Einsatz. Mit JELUCEL® bietet das JELU-WERK ein nachwachsendes Filterhilfsmittel, das ökologische und ökonomische Vorteile für die Filtration von Speiseöl hat.
Fats are essential for a diet. But how much fat is good for human health? The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommends a fat intake of 20-35 energy percent (E%) for adults. Fat intake in many Western countries, however, exceeds these recommendations. Since it is difficult for people to implement the diet recommendations in their daily life, using fat replacers in food processing for fat reduction is gaining in importance.
The substance flow balance of the new German Fertiliser Application Ordinance forces agricultural enterprises to set the phosphorus content of the feed accurately. Consequently, there is little room for variation in the phosphorus content. Different crude fibre sources can add different amounts of additional phosphorus to the ration. Lignocellulose, which is low in phosphorus, is especially suitable for use as a crude fibre component for a phosphorus-reduced feeding strategy.
