Success Stories


Project: New Oleochemical Plant

Client: Wilmar Group

JJ-Lurgi Engineering successfully commissioned a 400 tonnes per day oleochemicals complex for Wilmar Group at Gresik, Surabaya, Indonesia. This is the fifth oleochemicals complex delivered by our team for Wilmar Group.
Wilmar, the world’s largest and leading supplier of natural oleochemicals has engaged JJ-Lurgi to be their preferred supplier of oleochemicals production plants. To date, JJ-Lurgi has successfully built more than five other individual oleochemicals section plants for the Group and there are six more oleochemical projects currently being implemented.

Project: Innovative Degumming Process

Client: Bohai Group, China

This sizable project created a plant for edible oil refining with the capacity for 400 tonnes-per-day (TPD) super degumming, 1,200 TPD water degumming and 1,000 TPD chemical and physical edible oil refining. 
Responding to the feedback and stringent requirements of the customer the process for the super degumming plant was developed by our in-house R&D team. Their innovative approach reduced the use of chemical utilities such as citric acid and caustic soda compared with conventional neutralisation process.
In keeping with JJ-Lurgi’s support for green technologies, they integrated water recycling into the process using the waste-water from the neutralisation section as the reaction water in the water degumming section.  Requiring water at a rate of 1.25m3 per hour, this innovation significantly reduced the quantity of waste-water generated and subsequently, the investment cost for the waste-water treatment plant.
The most significant technological breakthrough, however, was the introduction of a new deodorizer design by JJ-Lurgi named “DW-Column”. This newly design column reduces the steam consumption in the refining process, with better final oil product quality in terms of there being a lower amount of trans-fatty acids and an improvement in oil colour.
