ChmlTech News

ChmlTech collaborates with UBC's professor to do research in membrane purification of crude biodiesel to meet stringent ASTM standard.

ChmlTech has worked closely with Western Canada biodiesel plants to support their successful launch by assisting with the plant design and laboratory design. We have provided extensive troubleshooting during their early production and upgrading phases.

Since 2008, ChmlTech had built 5 million litres and 25 million litres per year biodiesel production plants in Western Canada.

   

ChmlTech has worked closely with Chemical and Biological Engineering Department at University of British Columbia to implement Problem Based Learning (PBL) with biodiesel project. PBL is a teching method which is student-centered so that students collaboratively solve problems and reflect on their experience in order to learn concepts.

After implementing this teaching technique, students have improved their problem solving skills, research skills and social skills.
