Cottonseed Oil

What is
Cottonseed Oil?

Cottonseed oil is the oil that is produced from cottonseed.  

Cottonseed oil was the vegetable oil of choice until the mid 1940's.

Annual production of cottonseed oil is now more than 1 billion pound/year.  

Cottonseed oil is 3rd in annual production of all vegetable oils produced in the U.S. - coming in behind soybean oil and corn oil.

Cottonseed oil represents almost 7% of the total domestic vegetable oil supply in the U.S. 

Cottonseed oil has numerous applications in cooking and the food industry, cottonseed oil is used in:

Cottonseed oil is one of the most versatile vegetable oils - and does not require hydrogenation, which is used by restaurants and the food processing industry for healthy, "trans-free" food. 

According to American Heart Association, unsaturated vegetable oils like cottonseed oil are “heart healthy” when used in moderation.

Cottonseed oil has a 2:1 ratio of polyunsaturated to saturated fatty acids. Its fatty acid profile generally consists of:

Cottonseed oil is a good source of the essential fatty acids. 

Cottonseed oil has high levels of tocopherols (Vitamin E) which is a natural antioxidant.

Cottonseed oil is cholesterol free.

Cottonseed oil more recently is being used as a feedstock in the production of B100 Biodiesel. 

American grown cotton and Biodiesel produced from cottonseed oil reduces America's dependence on foreign oil and also reduces global carbon emissions and greenhouse gas emissions.

Clean Power Generation

Running on "green fuel" such as Biomethane, B100 Biodiesel, Synthesis Gas or natural gas, our CHP Systems are the greenest "clean power generation" systems available.

With Natural Gas at approximately $4.00/mmbtu, our Clean Power CHP Systems  generate power for about $0.04 / kWh (fuel cost).

With operations & maintenance added, that's  about 5.5 cents /kWh - or approximately 50% - 60% less than what most commercial customers are paying, on average, for their electricity.

CHP Systems
(Cogeneration and Trigeneration) Plants 
Have Very  High Efficiencies, Low Fuel Costs & Low Emissions

The CHP System below is rated at 900 kW with a 
heat rate of 4100 btu/kW & system efficiency of 92%.

The CHP System below features: (2) Natural Gas Engines @ 450 kW each 
on one skid with optional Selective Catalytic Reduction system 
which removes Nitrogen Oxides to "non-detect."



A CHP System may be the best solution for your company's economic and environmental  sustainability as we "upgrade" natural gas to clean power with our clean power generation solutions.  CHP Systems and Dispersed Generation power plants are an ideal solution for data centers, district energy systems electric utilities, electric co-ops, electrical sub-stations, energy service companies, food processing plants, hospitals, military bases and  universities among many others. 

High-efficiency CHP Systems eliminate blackouts, electric grid supply problems and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and hazardous air pollutants associated with electric power generation at central power plants.  Our emissions abatement solutions reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) to "non-detect" and can be installed and operated in most EPA non-attainment regions!
