World Energy, Hydro Dynamics partner to promote cavitation tech

By Hydro Dynamics Inc. | September 05, 2012

Hydro Dynamics Inc., makers of innovative ShockWave Power Reactor technology, and longtime biodiesel industry leader World Energy, through its WMG Services LLC business unit, announced Sept. 5 that the companies have teamed up to expand commercialization of the ShockWave Power Reactor for biodiesel applications worldwide.

Harnessing the power of cavitation, the ShockWave Power Biodiesel Reactor drives the transesterification reaction to completion in seconds. In true continuous or batch systems, the SPR gives biodiesel producers greater feedstock flexibility and the power to achieve consistently superior quality. The SPR can improve processes to reduce monoglycerides and reduce catalyst utilization. First commercialized for use in biodiesel applications at World Energy’s US Biofuels production facility in Rome, Ga., in 2005, the ShockWave Power technology is now in widespread use throughout the biodiesel industry. With over 400 million gallons of annual reactor capacity already installed, the ShockWave Power Reactor is setting a new standard for efficient biodiesel production.

Since 1998, Boston, Mass.-based World Energy has been a leading producer, supplier, and distributor of biodiesel in the U.S. and throughout the world. Widely recognized as a consistent innovator in the industry, World Energy has received domestic and international leadership awards from groups such as Platts and the U.S. DOE among others. Through its WMG Services LLC business unit, World Energy makes its expertise, experience and innovation available to companies throughout the biofuels supply chain including on-site demonstration and training relating to the SPR cavitation reaction technology at its US Biofuels production facility in Rome, Ga.

Hydro Dynamics is the developer of a patented process intensification technology enabling customers to solve critical mixing and heating problems. Reactors are operating on four continents in applications ranging from increasing biofuel production yields to more efficient mixing of chemical substrates. The ShockWave Power Reactor allows customers to significantly decrease operational and capital costs and increase profits while reducing the environmental impact of many processes.
