MARKETS FOR OIL

So far… Culinary Oils, Cosmetics, Green fuels, Green lubrication oils, Animal supplements/conditioners, paints, candles.

CULINARY OILS
The market for cold pressed oils continues to grow as they are pure and unadulterated. We have supplied equipment used to make oils from hemp, canola, flax, sunflower, soybean, walnut, hazelnut, cocoa, niger seed, sesame, macadamia, pumpkin and more.  
ANIMAL SUPPLIMENTS
The cake is a valuable animal feed but oils are also used in animal suppliments, soybeans or flax for example for horse health and condition. Recently we have supplied presses to extract fat from Black Soldier Fly larvae.
COSMETICS
Soaps, lotions, shampoos, massage oils, Many natural seed and nut oils are used, recently we supplied equipment to press jojoba and shea butter as well as raspberry and rosehip.
CANDLES
We have a process to solidify oil, all natural and makes great candles. Let me know if you want to make candles (works with all types of vegetable oils) 
INDUSTRIAL OILS SUCH AS GREEN LUBRICATION OILS
Biolubricants are oils designed for rapid biodegradability and low environmental toxicity, one example is total loss lubricants such as chain saw oils, bicycle oils and other lost oils such as release oils for concrete shuttering etc.
We have recently found a supplier of biodegradable tackifier for rapeseed oil. This is a product that will make the oil tacky or stringy so that it sticks well to bicycle and other chains and the bar of chainsaws rather than flinging off as the chain. If anyone is interested in trying out their oil mixed with tackifier then please get in touch.
SOME OTHERS to think about:
Sunflower cake is a high value high protein chicken feed
