Season's Greetings,
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2018!

Dear Business Friends, Dear Colleagues,

As Christmas and the Holiday Season have arrived again we take this opportunity to thank you all most sincerely for your trust and continued partnership during 2017.

This year we again decided to make a charitable donation rather than sending Christmas gifts.
So we have chosen "Weltweite Kinderhilfe e.V" , active in support of parentless, needy children in our home community.

The participants in our cheque donation ceremony are (l to r):

Klaus Schmidt/1st Mayor Waldbuettelbrunn, Udo Interwies, Gerhard Herderich/Chairman Weltweite Kinderhilfe e.V., Stefan Opis, Hans Lebahn.

We send one and all our very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year together with confident hopes for a successful 2018,

Your team at ILUDEST

Distillation Plant for Renewable Fuel Creation Biofuels from Synthetic Crude Oils

ILUDEST’s/i-Fischer’s latest innovative Project

by Dr. H-E. Koenen

The used lubrication oil re-refiner, Northern Oil Refinery (NOR) in Gladstone, Queensland/ Australia, is utilizing new technology to expand into the renewable fuels industry. Numerous crude fuel manufactures across the country generate crude fuel oil from a number of waste resources, including wood and cellulose waste, end of life tyres and biosolids from sewerage treatment plants. The crude fuels and oils will be sent to the new Biofuels Pilot Plant at NOR for further refining into a drop-in fuel, predominantly diesel. The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has provided funding for a specialised fuels laboratory, which will allow testing of the crude fuels for their suitability to be turned into a renewable diesel or “biofuel”. The new Biofuels Pilot Plant (refinery) at NOR will also allow existing refinery waste and residue to be converted into renewable diesel.

Waste oils and old tyres are collected throughout the region as a feedstock source for manufacturing of the crude oils. Tyres will be thermally decomposed and the synthetic crude oils condensed as raw fuels. The raw oils can contain high amounts of water, nitrogen, sulphur and oxygen containing compounds as well as aggressive and sublimating multi-ring aromatic compounds found also in common crude oil components.

ILUDEST/i-Fischer have designed, manufactured, supplied and commissioned two specially modified, tailor-made distillation units following the standards ASTM D2892 and D5236, which are well suited to manage the challenging chemistry of the mentioned crude fuels and oils.

Since the feedstock make-up can differ quite substantially, the Biofuel Pilot Plant at NOR has to be able to process the different range of feedstocks and raw fuels created from different sources on a daily basis. ILUDEST’s/i-Fischer’s laboratory distillation unit

FISCHER® AUTODEST® 800/860 AC/S

combines the capabilities of ASTM D2892 and D5236 (coal tar version), designed to deliver suitable distillation data and sample cuts for further laboratory analysis. This can be performed on a day to day basis to precisely and reliable adjust process settings to guarantee the smooth operation of the Biofuel (Pilot) Plant.

The Australian Minister for Small Business, the Hon. Michael McCormack, praised the remarkable future concept of NOR at the inauguration ceremony in December 2016, which plans to accelerate the Australian Renewable Fuel industry through partnership with regional renewable crude oil producers and develop a Biofuel Pilot Plant inside Australia with the potential for exporting the technology overseas. The innovative business concept ties in a number of small producers and creates jobs across all of Australia while simultaneously reducing environmental problems through recycling of commercial industrial and domestic waste products.

ILUDEST/i-Fischer, in close cooperation with our exclusive representatives for Australia and New Zealand, M/s John Morris Scientific Pty. Ltd., are proud to have been chosen by NOR as project partners and to join and support this innovative conceptual strategy and process technologies with our expertise and skills in the field of Thermal Process Engineering.

Physics Outsmarted?

A new Iludest distillation plant extends the limits of what is possible and enables the extremely pure separation of bitumen fractions in a packed distillation column — In this way the process engineers from Waldbüttelbrunn defy the thermodynamic limits of the ASTM Standards D2892 and D5236, and bring two seemingly incompatible requirements under one hat.

25 Years Thinking Ahead

As written in ILUDEST’s Milestones …

In 1990 we had a fortunate convergence in that Udo Interwies, a graduate in Process Engineering, and Hans Lebahn, a state-certified Electronics Engineer, decided to set up in partnership in Karlstadt and Kitzingen/Germany” not long after in 1995 Stefan Opis joined the Group to complete the Management Team.

Now, after 25 years of continual development, always focused on new/improved products, markets, customers’ requirements, team qualification and building, ILUDEST has reached a level in market penetration, which makes us confident for the future while keeping the same idea of “forward thinking”, as has always been our philosophy. From 1990 we have developed a team which has grown to the current 32 persons. This “future” team, dedicated to our customers’ needs, is comprised mainly of younger people with up to 50% of these holding University degrees.

At this stage we really must express a “Herzliches Dankschön” to our worldwide users’ community, as they do carry a considerable part of ILUDEST’s success. It is our aim and challenge for the coming 25 years to deepen this respective collaboration further …

 



> Original-Letter

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is our ongoing aim to make our business processes more convenient and efficient for our customers. In the interests of putting this principle into practice once again, ILUDEST Destillationsanlagen GmbH has taken over all the shares in i-Fischer Engineering GmbH with effect as of 1 January 2015.

i-Fischer Engineering will be merged into ILUDEST Destillationsanlagen in the course of the first half of this year and continue its operations under the brand "i-Fischer®", "a division of ILUDEST®". This means that the existing range of i-Fischer products will remain unchanged and available to you in the future as well under the established product names with the same high standards of quality as before.

This course of action also enables a sustainable succession arrangement for Dr. Hans-Eckhard Koenen who has until now been shareholding managing director of i-Fischer. Dr. Koenen will be joining the ILUDEST team as member of the "Engineering" division staff.

The former shareholders Intermass Fischer-Asia Pte. Ltd. will be working closely with ILUDEST in the future as well, then as exclusive agents for China, Malaysia and Singapore.

We would like to express our thanks to both of them for over ten years of successful cooperation and a relationship at all times characterized by a basis of trust and friendship.

All contracts and agreements you concluded with i-Fischer Engineering GmbH up to 31 December 2014 pass to ILUDEST Destillationsanlagen GmbH, with all rights and obligations, by way of universal succession as of 1 January 2015 as effective date of the merger.

Your accustomed contacts at i-Fischer and ILUDEST will remain at your service as before. We look forward to continuing our cooperation.

Sincerely yours,
ILUDEST Destillationsanlagen GmbH
