Biodiesel Production Facility:

Biodiesel is a clean burning alternative fuel, produced from renewable resources. It contains no petroleum, however, it can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a biodiesel blend. Biodiesel is produced from any fat or oil such as soybean oil, through a refinery process called transesterification. This process also produces glycerin, which is a by-product of biodiesel production.

Thermon holds a unique position as the only international trace heating company completely dedicated to its industry.
