Ukraine. Agroliga completing the construction of a state-of-the-art oil extraction plant

19.02.2018

Agroliga Group is completing the construction of an oil extraction plant in the town settlement of Nova Vodolaga (Kharkiv region), reports UkrAgroConsult.

The launch of the plant is scheduled for Q1 2018. The claimed range of oilseed crushing volumes varies within 100-180 KMT with no additional investment in equipment. If minor investment is attracted, this capacity could be increased to 280 KMT a year.

The commissioning of a state-of-the-art extraction line will raise the oil yield by 10% compared with the pressing technology. Instead of oil cake, the company will get sunseed meal with a protein content of 38% and a residual oil content of at most 0.5-1%.

In addition, the plant’s new equipment can be readjusted for crushing other oilseeds (rapeseed and soybeans) with no extra expenses.
