Non-Food: Coconut Methyl Ester (Biodiesel) | Soap Noodles | Toilet / Bath Soaps
1. Coconut Methyl Ester (Biodiesel) (Brand Name BioPure):

BIO PURE is a Coconut Methyl Ester (Biodiesel) fuel derived from coconut oil. It is biodegradable and non-toxic, with significantly less emissions than petroleum/fossil fuel-based diesel when burned. BioPure is a light to dark yellow liquid, and has a viscosity similar to petrodiesel. It is practically immiscible with water, has a high boiling point and low vapor pressure. The good news is BioPure can be immediately used by diesel engine vehicles/machines! Apart from vehicular use, BioPure can also be used as a heating fuel in domestic and commercial boilers.

In warm climates like the Philippines', pure unblended biodiesel (B100) can be poured straight into the tank of any diesel vehicle, or conservatively, may be blended with petroleum diesel at any concentration in most modern diesel engines. Biodiesel will degrade natural rubber gaskets and hoses in vehicles (mostly found in vehicles manufactured before 1992), although these tend to wear out naturally and most likely will have already been replaced with Viton which is nonreactive to biodiesel.

Biodiesel's higher lubricity index compared to petrodiesel is an advantage and can contribute to longer fuel injector life. Biodiesel is a better solvent than petrodiesel and has been known to break down deposits of residue in the fuel lines of vehicles that have previously been run on petrodiesel. Fuel filters may become clogged with particulates if a quick transition to pure biodiesel is made, as biodiesel "cleans" the engine in the process.

Application: Biodiesel can be distributed using today's infrastructure, and its use and production are increasing rapidly. Fuel stations are beginning to make biodiesel available to consumers, and a growing number of transport fleets use it as an additive in their fuel. In fact, a motor using biodiesel would have an average increase of 17 km for every liter of biodiesel consumed. This would safely mean saving about PhP 1-3 per liter of diesel.

2. Soap Noodles:

Pure Essence International, Inc. uses only the top quality oils and oil blends in its soap noodle product. Its process and machineries are state of the art and are so flexible that can combine vegetable oil or animal fat with a strong alkali to produce soap. Currently, PEI is using different blends of palm oil and coconut oil: the customer will decide what oil will be used. Palm oil makes soaps less melting, and creates hard, long-lasting soap that is mild but still cleanses well. Coconut oil gives soap with bubbly lather, lots of glycerin (hence non-drying of skin), and is very stable.

3. Toilet / Bath Soaps:
For bath soap, different shapes can be incorporated in the machine. About 78% of the soap is made of total fatty matter (TFM) soap noodles. As the percentage of TFM decreases, so does the quality of the soap. Though today's soap no longer has any lye in it, most bath soaps have a slight amount of excess alkali.
