Cold Flow Improver for Biodiesel, NEOPROVER (In Development)

Methacrylate Copolymer-based Cold Flow Improver (CFI) that is compatible with various biodiesel

What Makes Methacrylate Copolymer, “NEOPROVER” Great as a Cold Flow Improver for Biodiesel:

1. Cold Flow Improvement Ability:

“NEOPROVER” demonstrates excellent cold flow improvement for biodiesel. This technology stems from Sanyo Chemical’s extensive history in methacrylate copolymer design.

2. Low Poul Point:

“NEOPROVER” itself exhibits great low-temperature fluidity.

3. Suitable for Various Biodiesel Sources:

“NEOPROVER” is compatible with various biodiesel sources, including soy, palm, coconuts, and used cooking oil (UCO).

Typical Properties

Table 1. Main properties of NEOPROVER

Property Value Remark
Appearance Straw-colored liquid to yellow liquid
