The BioCube arrives built and ready to run. If consumables such as methanol, catalyst, filtration medium and feedstock oil is on site, the BioCube can be processing biodiesel within 48 hours of arrival. It is a turnkey operation and, unless a scaled-up BioCube Plant is being constructed using multiple BioCubes, little or no on-site construction is required as with traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ refineries.
At the most basic level, the BioCube needs a flat hard stand approximately 80’x80′ to be placed on for running. This also allows for easy movement around the BioCube for feedstock oils chemicals and consumables and removal of finished biodiesel. Some BioCube owners will want a simple set up, others may choose to create a more elaborate infrastructure; most will want to put this valuable mini-refinery under cover where it can be protected from the elements and from tampering. With a hard stand in place, covered or not, the BioCube can be placed, grounded, opened and run. The beauty of the BioCube is that it is transportable and easy to relocate if desired.
BioCube Corporation or their designated distributors in territory will be onsite to commission the unit and help train the designated users. Part of every build is understanding the safety needs of the site and the rules and regulations of the local jurisdiction. These must be adhered to carefully by the site owner. The BioCube will arrive fully certified to Canadian CSA operating safety standards, however, it should be noted that permits and operating requirements vary by country and province; it is the responsibility of the owner/operator of the BioCube to comply with local legislation requirements.
If you would like advice or help in any facet of the placement, construction, implementation of your new BioCube, BioCube Consultancy can be brought in to help design and construct your BioCube set up at extremely reasonable rates.
