Press cake from sunflowers

With the cold press the yield is about 10% less than with hot-pressed oil. These 10% of oil remain in the press cake, an especially high-quality animal feed.

  Would you like to eat this?


This is a high-quality animal feed with huge energy. Would you put it on your menu? This question is directed especially to the Veganer which reject the food through milk or eggs.

Veganer try to denounce the keeping of pets over and over again as an energy waste and waste of agricultural surface. Here in this wood container lies the truth about all these arguments.

The fields must be managed. If the oil comes to an end, every farmer will do this by the cultivation of plants rich in energy to win fuel for the tractor. Horses and oxen are no option because these need essentially more cultivation surface for their food. However, what to do with the press cake?

I would like to see the Veganer who eats this. Normal vegetarians eat the eggs and drink the milk which is produced by animal feed like this. The others also eat the meat

Biomass fuel production Biomass fuel production
From the simple oil press up to the most modern wood gasification to produce by the Fischer Tropsch method something like Diesel from wood.




  Vegetable oil instead of diesel as a fuel


With which will we prepare our fields when the crude oil comes to an end? Wolfgang Löser has already thought about it years ago and presents his solution with sunflowers.

Sunflower oil press Sunflower oil press
Not only for people, also healthier for the diesel : cold-pressed oil. By temperatures more than 60 degrees would reach phosphorus and wax in the oil which damage a diesel.


Sunflowers oil: Pack the sun into the tank Sunflowers oil: Pack the sun into the tank
A farmer needs about 10% of his cultivation surface in order to have enough fuel for his tractor. A ha brings about 1000 liters sunflower oil per year in central Europe.


Refinery products Refinery products
After in the oil press the press cake was produced the vegetable oil stores several weeks in an tank. After some weeks are 3 layers of different products.






Refinery of a farmer
Independence of the oil price and self-sufficiency were the purposes for the construction this vegetable oil refinery. Who expects now high-complex technology like with an oil refinery Heat exchanger coolant to vegetable oil
Engine space of a Golf TDI. The heat exchanger brings the vegetable oil on the temperature of the coolant. Only more than 80 degrees vegetable oil has combustion qualities like diesel. Fuel heating for vegetable oil
Vegetable oil has only with 80 degrees the qualities of diesel with regard to viscosity and ignition willingness. The vegetable oil has to be warmed up for the cold start electrically. Tractor tank - 275 liters for one working day
More than 20 liters per hour needs this tractor. Field work is heavy and requires as  so much energy like a middle class car needs at 180 km/h.
