In 2007 Franco Longhini founded and setup a 60,000 MTY biodiesel manufacturing plant in Malaysia. His contribution included: project conceptualization, co- funding, construction, production and sales of biodiesel and its by-products.
It was the first of its kind in Malaysia. Afterward 18 biodiesel plant were completed and currently a total of 11 plants are operational.
After 10 years of operation the Plant is currently owned by Bright Integrity Sdn Bhd. link
With more than 10 years of working experience in biodiesel production, he developed a reliable business networking with the key players of the industry. All available products are ISCC certified.
His extensive knowledge of the biodiesel industry and the acquired business networking provide you with a solid partner in sourcing and supplying Waste Vegetable Oils for the production of Double Counting RED Biodiesel.
Upon request he provides business development consultancy services which include project conceptualization, road show, funds rising, supervision during construction, installation, commissioning and start-up.
Franco Longhini comes from the oil & gas industry where he worked as a researcher for 9 years. Afterward, he moved into manufacturing and then he spent the last 13 years in the field of renewable energy.
The UCO is collected in Taiwan from restaurant and/or food industry in full compliance with the local environmental legislation. Afterward it’s then transferred in a collection tank where is filtered. At this point both quality and quantity of the product are inspected. If the inspection pass, the UCO is finally stored in a sealed tank ready to be stuffed according to customer’s requirement and shipped out. We operate in compliance with the ISCC certification and upon customer request we can provide “Waste Transfer Note”.
The Palm Oil processing process generates highly polluting waste-water compounds, known as Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME), which are usually discarded as effluent waters leaking contaminants to the ground and releasing methane gas into the atmosphere. Around 600-700 kg of POME are generated for every ton of oilseed. The Crude Methyl Ester is obtained from the separation and recovery of the discharged effluent waters and subsequently esterified into 40% methyl ester for easy handling and shipping.
The product is obtained by collecting and processing the residue generated from the oil mill effluent pond. First, the residue is centrifuged into different layers according the specific gravity. We generate 3 main outputs: sludge (organic compound), water and acid oil. Second, the sludge oil is then purified and cleaned ready to be stored and shipped to oleo chemical and biodiesel manufacturer. All recovery processes are conducted under the “low carbon & low energy consumption” regulation.
Fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) is obtained by transesterification of various residual feedstock including Palm Fatty Acid (PFAD), soybean acid oil (SBAO), used cooking oil (UCO) and various other vegetal and animal oils and fats. The residual oils and fats are locally produced and recovered and are also imported from other Asian countries. All recovering and manufacturing processes are in full compliance with the latest local environmental regulation and the finished biodiesel product is ISCC certified.
