We develop innovative solutions that maximize both economic value and environmental sustainability for our partners, clients and associates.
Our technology has broad applicability in many industries. Generally, we look to identify waste streams that contain high levels of hydrocarbons or fats. We have experience in a wide variety of applications.
USED MOTOR OIL
CITAMORA’s seeks to partner with generators or recyclers to upgrade their used oils into high quality fuels or lubricants. Citamora’s technology creates opportunities for (a) small companies looking to significantly increase the quality of their used oils and (b) larger companies looking to improve yields, increase quality and reduce operating costs.
Our technology is capable of efficiently recovering lubricants and coolants used in various industrial settings, from spent drilling muds generated by oil and gas exploration companies to coolants used in metalworking plants. The recovery and refining process enables the oils to be reutilized in the industrial process.
Food wastes and animal fats
Citamora has developed an innovative process capable of reclaiming the valuable oils and proteins in discarded foods and other liquid or emulsified waste streams. The Citamora process cost effectively: (a) separates foods into their most elemental components (oils, proteins, carbohydrates, water), (b) sterilizes foods, which increases their shelf life and, in the case of proteins, (c) makes food more digestible than commercial formats.
The process of vegetable oil crushing and refining generates by-products that can be recovered and upgraded to maximize their commercial value. Recovered oils can be commercialized into the biodiesel or animal feed industry.
