Palm oil is the most common vegetable oil in the world used in food manufacturing industry and home care.

Non-recoverable losses of product occur during palm oil extraction, and industrial waste (Palm Oil Mill Effluent, POME) is discharged in man-made lakes and settlement ponds. Oil decomposition takes decades in those ponds, which has negative impact on environment.

The oil losses at extraction of oil at the factory with capacity of 60 tons of fruits per hour amount to 1% and more. And discharged industrial wastes amount to about 40 m3 per day; they can’t be used for irrigation of plantations.


Before implementation of the solution

After implementation of the solution

Oil losses at centrifuge treatment stage

0.9 – 1.2% 

0.3 – 0.5%

Additional oil extraction

Not applicable

up to 5%

Decreasing oil concentration in POME

Not applicable

by 2-3 times

Example of flowchart
One of the methods of Biomicrogels BMG-C4 application is using the agent after a centrifugal pulp that pulps unrefined palm oil into a clarifier.

Insertion of the agent at this stage makes possible to simplify the process of releasing oil particles from solid particles, which speeds up the process of separating the oil in the clarifier .. Introduction The agent increases the efficiency of separating the extracted oil, and also reduces the oil content in POME by 2-3 times.

Upon contact with oil drops in aqueous phase Biomicrogel® BMG-C4 Product stabilizes at oil-water interface forming submicron polymer films displacing the oil drops from the particles of crushed crop, after which they surface.  

Unlike the other Biomicrogels® modifications used as sorbent, flocculant or flocculating agent where strength of films (microcapsules) is critical and must be maintained during ling time, it is critical in this case to just ensure their short-term presence on the surface of the solid particles, ensuring oil separation from the solids and its surfacing on water. After the process is completed Biomicrogel® BMG-C4 Product is distributed in aqueous phase and over solids.
Place an order

Biomicrogel® BMG-С4 Product is used in form of 3% ready to use solution.

In order to prepare Biomicrogel BMG-C4 ready to use solution, it is necessary to use special equipment for the preparation and dispensing of the BMG PDS series and according to the instruction manual for BMG-C4
Biomicrogel® BMG-С4 Product is supplied as powder. 

It is packed in 25 kg polypropylene bags, and the bags are then placed on pallets. One pallet carries 20 bags – 500 kg of the Product.

To avoid hydrolysis or increase of microbial counts, fungi, hence resulting in deterioration, use Biomicrogel® BMG-С4 Product treatment solution within 7 days after preparation.

Biomicrogel® BMG-С4 Product is delivered in sterile condition; however, solutions can promote growth of airborne or aquatic bacteria and fungi. Always add biocide in storage areas where this process can occur.

It is recommended to use biocides based on isothiazoline in proportion of 700 ppm of agent per water volume. Equipment for preparation and containers for storage of Biomicrogel® BMG-С4 Product treatment solution as well as pipelines shall be pre-flushed and disinfected. Store the product in cool and dry place. Keep the entire protective packaging safe until the product is used. Guaranteed storage life – 24 months as of date of manufacture.

Biomicrogel® BMG-С4 Product shall be disposed of in accordance with effective legislation.
