The Biofuels Industry utilizes pressure vessels, reactors, mixers, heat exchangers and other equipment to convert raw materials including vegetable oils, animal fats, UCO (used cooking oils), livestock manure, plant waste, and algae into finished products such as:

  • Biodiesel
  • Bioethanol
  • Biomass processing
  • Biogas from digester feedstock (cattle, swine)
  • Biomethane
  • Bio oil
  • Butanol
  • Ethanol
  • Isobutanol
  • Isobutylene
  • Isoctane
  • Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF)
Distillation columns and towers are also widely utilized for the separation of large liquid volumes while API storage vessels are frequently needed for the storage of both raw materials and final products.


We understand the challenges of the biofuels processing industry, particularly the paramount importance of tank, vessel and equipment code compliance to ensure safe operations and protect from potential fire, explosion and other hazards associated with flammable liquids.


Bendel specializes in the custom design and fabrication of corrosion-resistant biofuel tanks, vessels and equipment using specialty metals including High-Nickel Alloys (Hastelloy, Monel, Inconel), Duplex Stainless Steel, Austenitic 300 Series Stainless Steels, and Super Austenitic Stainless Steel Alloys that:

  • Deliver excellent corrosion resistance
  • Optimize performance & reliability
  • Prevent cross contamination
