The market of chemical products is growing

The market for mineral oil-based chemical products is rapidly evolving. Exploitatie B. V. is actively approaching this market to ascertain where there are benefits for both producers and users. All non-hazardous substances are managed in accordance with common health and safety regulations.


An aviation fuel storage tank is used to store civil jet fuels like Jet A and Jet A-1.

Jet A-1 fuel is suitable for use with most turbine engine aircraft. This kerosene grade fuel has a flash point above 38 Degrees C (100 Degrees F) and a freeze point maximum of -47 Degrees C.

Jet A fuel is very similar to Jet A-1 Fuel, but with slight differences. Jet A has a higher freeze point maximum of -40 Degrees C and these are our latest storage tanks. 

Biodiesel storage methods are not far removed from traditional diesel storage methods; however, there are some considerations for optimum fuel longevity and purity.

  • Six month viable storage life with proper precautions
  • Store in a moisture-free location away from heat and out of direct sunlight
  • If unable to store out of direct sunlight or warm weather; cover tanks with reflective tarp
  • To reduce fuel polymerization and oxidation, store in tightly sealed full tanks
  • Remove all moisture from tanks, as water promotes slime and bacteria growth and fuel degradation
  • Zinc and copper leech into biodiesel, causing impurities, so do not store fuel in tanks containing any amount of these metals
