BASF markets Lutropur® MSA, methanesulfonic acid, for the biodiesel industry. Lutropur® MSA, the purest MSA product available on the market, can be used in acid esterification (FFA reduction), degumming of feedstocks, and the neutralization of crude biodiesel and glycerin. MSA has advantages over commonly used acids such as sulfuric and pTSA, including lower corrosion and faster phase separation. BASF also offers a 94% active version, Lutropur® MSA-XP, and a low-corrosion version, Lutropur® MSA-SP. Lutropur® MSA-XP can provide an increase in FFA conversion to biodiesel in a shorter time.
