Silicates

For Edible Oils and Biofuels

Oil-Dri’s Silicates are specially modified for the removal of soaps, metals, and phospholipids to help in the production of clean, quality edible oils and biodiesel feedstock that meet the most demanding specifications.

These products originate from a unique mineral deposit located near Ochlocknee, Georgia. The minerals in this region feature a large, highly active surface area well suited for the removal of impurities from oil streams.

Select For Edible Oils

Our edible oil technology maximizes the adsorption of impurities that negatively impact oil quality. Using Select may also allow for the reduction of bleaching earths used in your process.

Select For Biodiesel

Our selective adsorbents are designed to attract and bind unwanted compounds, helping your fuel to pass industry specifications. Select removes unwanted soaps, metals, and other impurities from feedstock oils with or without the use of a water wash centrifuge.
