Rome, GA (PRWEB) February 03, 2014

Hydro Dynamics, Inc. (http://www.hydrodynamics.com), makers of innovative ShockWave Power Reactor (SPR) technology and longtime biodiesel industry leader World Energy, through its WMG Services, LLC business unit (http://www.worldenergy.net), announced today that World Energy has upgraded to an SPR BD 50 at its Rome, GA facility. The new SPR, in combination with other expansions, will allow the plant to increase its production while still maintaining its heritage of quality.

Harnessing the power of cavitation, the ShockWave Power Biodiesel Reactor drives the transesterification reaction to completion in seconds. In true continuous or batch systems, the SPR gives biodiesel producers greater feedstock flexibility and the power to achieve consistently superior quality. The SPR can improve processes to reduce monoglycerides and reduce catalyst utilization. First commercialized for use in biodiesel applications at World Energy’s US Biofuels production facility in Rome, Georgia, in 2005 the ShockWave Power technology is now in widespread use throughout the biodiesel industry. With over 500 million gallons of annual reactor capacity now sold, the ShockWave Power Reactor is setting a new standard for efficient biodiesel production.

The ShockWave PowerTM Reactor (SPR) is manufactured by Hydro Dynamics, Inc., a world leader in process intensification reactors. Together with World Energy, Hydrodynamics, Inc. offers reactor systems to the biodiesel industry for every size of plant and the expertise in biodiesel processing necessary to implement ShockWave PowerTM Reactor in any new or existing biodiesel production facility.
