Dexter, Michigan – Trucent Separation Technologies, LLC announced the launch of CORE™, a new technology to significantly reduce impurities in distillers corn oil (DCO), resulting in a cleaner oil, TruDCO™, which can be sold directly to renewable diesel refineries. The full-scale demonstration unit of CORE™ has been commercialized in conjunction with The Andersons, Inc. and is consistently producing TruDCO™ for direct sale to renewable diesel refineries at a premium above crude DCO.

The CORE™ module for the ethanol industry features an operator-friendly, efficient, bolt-on skid-mounted process with a small footprint, low operating costs and a quick ROI. “We’re excited to introduce customers to the benefits of adopting this new technology to elevate and redefine distillers corn oil for direct use in renewable diesel refineries,” said Tara Vigil, Trucent Vice President/GM, Bioprocess Solutions. “The CORE™ technology suite aligns well with Trucent’s global directive to maximize renewable resource use and drive profitability in ways that do good for our Earth while improving the quality of business operations.”

This advancement in oil treatment technology was born out of years of vegetable oil processing experience in combination with proprietary fluid separation process techniques and solutions developed by Trucent. The result is a unique and robust modular technology that can be implemented at any facility currently producing DCO or other crude renewable oils. Operation of CORE™ to produce TruDCO™ provides plants an opportunity for meaningful revenue enhancement by elevating their crude distillers corn oil to a ready-made low-carbon-intensity feedstock for the ever-expanding renewable diesel industry.

CORE™ draws upon Trucent’s extensive experience in fluid separation technology and exceptional services, and with The Andersons, is supplied with a distinctive Early-Adopter Support Program comprised of analytical, quality, technical, and operational support together with a comprehensive oil marketing program. Benefits of the Early-Adopter Support Program include:
