Our project objective is to design a plant producing sesame oil from seed via mechanical grinding followed by solvent extraction. The target production is 10,750 metric tons of oil per year.
1) Design the key features of each equipment in the process;
2) Specify the operating conditions;
3) Estimate the cost of our equipment and the cost of production;
4) Determine whether it is economically advantageous compared to alternatives such as an oil press.
