Biofuels: KSB pumps for a positive eco-balance

Pumps and valves from KSB are ideal for use in a wide range of biofuel production processes. With excellent hydraulic systems, a broad selection of materials and a variety of sealing options, KSB products also comply with EC Directives. KSB Pumpen & Armaturen für Biokraftstoffe

Biofuels make a valuable and immediate contribution to efforts aimed at reducing emissions and their effects on climate change. Our efficient products operate reliably and safely in the production of biofuels and thus play a major role in reducing the use of fossil fuels.

Biofuel types

Biodiesel is biodegradable, non-toxic and produces considerably less emissions during combustion than mineral oil based diesel fuel. Biodiesel can be used in standard diesel engines. Ethanol is referred to as bioethanol when it has been exclusively produced from biomass (renewable carbonaceous material) or the biodegradable parts of waste and is intended for use as biofuel.

Second generation biofuels

While first generation biofuels are produced from plant matter with a high oil and starch content, second generation biofuels use organic waste. Using this type of waste means that no greenhouse gases are produced, as there is no need to grow crops and cultivate agricultural land. Second generation biofuels contribute to reducing the carbon footprint and are not produced from raw materials which also serve as food.

As one of the leading manufacturers of pumps and valves, KSB is involved in developing new processes for the production of second generation biofuels and is thus investing in the future.

Our solutions

Whatever the biofuel application, we have the right pump on offer: from canned motor pumps, mag-drive pumps and pumps with several mechanical seals, quench or barrier fluid systems, to diaphragm and bellows pumps.
