Pascal Plant

If biodiesel or other advanced chemicals are required, from the Dafne Plant the methanol is sent to the Pascal Plant to be subjected to transesterification.

Transesterification is a chemical reaction with basic catalysis, the main result of which is the breakdown of the molecules of triglycerides, that is, of the fatty acids that characterize vegetable oil and which are the basis of its high viscosity.

The transesterification process takes place using an alcoholic reagent such as methanol, whose action is reinforced and accelerated by a catalyst. Alcohol, in the presence of a strong base, reacting with fatty acids, produces biodiesel on the one hand and glycerol on the other.

Ultrasonic conversion of biodiesel enables continuous in-line processing with biodiesel yields greater than 99%.

Biodiesel can be used pure or blended as a substitute for diesel fuel in the transport sector and as a fuel for the heating.

From an environmental point of view, biodiesel compared to diesel:

  • reduces net emissions of carbon monoxide (CO) by 50% and carbon dioxide by 78.45%;
  • does not contain aromatic hydrocarbons;
  • PAH emissions are reduced by up to 70%;
  • it does not generate SO2 emissions;
  • reduces the emission of fine dust by up to 50%;
  • it is completely biodegradable.

    • Dafne Plant

      The Dafne Plant is an innovative apparatus with dynamic molecular sieves. It finds its main field of application in the dehydration of gases and has been designed to obtain the dew point of the gases according to standard specifications (for example: - 5 ° C @ 72 Bar): the gas therefore comes to be in the ideal conditions of use and transport while avoiding the formation of unwanted hydrates.

    • Odor problems

      To remedy any odor problems caused by the treated materials, in addition to the processing in depression, the biological deodorization technology will be adopted by means of the MonaShell® biotrickling filter, made by one of our partners. Thanks to this system, the qualities of the counter-current washing are combined with those of a biological filtering system. The operation is similar to that...

    • Biodigestion

      The preparation of the substrate consists in obtaining the physical-chemical characteristics considered optimal for introduction into the biodigester.


      We are talking about an atypical industrial plant which, instead of polluting, will proceed to remove pollution and improve people’s lives.

    • Empowering Device

      Empowering Device has been fully conceived, developed and implemented by our team and is able to simultaneously manage different types of controlled cavitation, of which 5 of a different nature but which coexist harmoniously to the point that no significant vibrations are detected.

    • Gasification

      In nature there is no "waste", everything is recovered and put back into circulation in a virtuous cycle.

    • Mining

      The current evolution of mining passes thorough the abandonment of methods that are dangerous for man and the environment, such as the use of mercury and cyanides, to get to Borax, a modern and harmless method, which also allows a better yield in recovered gold.

    • Plasma

      For Plasma refers to a conductive gas, highly ionized. The torch or the non-transferred arc electrodes are capable of producing plasma at very high temperatures (the highest achieved in controlled industrial processes) and such as to cause thermochemical dissociation of what is being treated.

    • Soil washing

      Most of our specialists and technicians come from the Oil & Gas sector and, therefore, has been taught to everyone of them, since the early beginning, that any spillage in the soil must be avoided. This is not only for obvious environmental problems but also to avoid costly and annoying protests by environmental movements.
