Desmet’s headquarters for the oleochemical, HVO & biodiesel activities are located in Brussels (Belgium). This is the product centre for the conception of high performance plants and components for:

  • Biodiesel & Methyl Esters processes;
  • Fatty acids processes;
  • Glycerine processes for sweet water, spent lyes and methylesters;
  • Fatty alcohol processes;
  • HVO, renewable diesel processes.

Since decades, Desmet ventured into Oleo-chemicals and has an impressive track record...

Through various technology alliances, like with Johnson Matthey Davy Technologies for the fatty alcohols processes, combined with a strong product development: Desmet became a major reference in this field.

Desmet and its 21 affiliated companies, celebrating this year its 75thanniversary, have installed worldwide more than 350 oleochemical and biodiesel processes, plus more than 10 HVO pre-treatment plants in operation or under construction during the last 10 years.

  • Quality control by experienced project management teams. Total in-house expertise for new projects, plant expansions or upgrades;
  • Possible sources of financing origination from countries where Desmet companies operate;
