Resumen:
Un instituto de investigación rumano ha desarrollado una tecnología para obtener diésel a partir de aceite de girasol utilizando la reacción de transesterificación con metanol en catálisis enzimática. La tecnología aumenta la productividad reduciendo el ciclo de producción y los pasos del proceso necesarios para la purificación del producto final. Otra ventaja es la reducción del consumo de energía debido a temperaturas de reacción más bajas. La tecnología es una alternativa más ecológica a los procesos convencionales porque no se necesita tratamiento de aguas residuales. Gracias a esta tecnología, se obtiene biodiésel purificado (98%). Se buscan socios industriales con el fin de establecer acuerdos comerciales con asistencia técnica para desarrollar, homologar e iniciar la producción de la nueva tecnología.

Tittle:
Enzymatic technology for biodiesel production from vegetable oils
Summary:
A Romanian research institute has developed a technology for obtaining diesel engine fuel from sunflower oil, by using the transesterification reaction with methanol in enzymatic catalysis. The Romanian research institute is looking for commercial agreement with technical assistance (engineering and technical assistance) with an industrial partner, to develop, homologate and introduce the new technology into production.
Description:
Within this technology, a Diesel-type fuel is obtained from sunflower oil, by using the transesterification reaction with methanol in enzymatic catalysis, with Candida antarctica lipase B in immobilized form as biocatalysts. The reaction mixture submitted to the transesterification reaction is prepared by mixing the sunflower oil with tert-butanol and methanol and introduced then over the packed-bed immobilized enzyme. The reaction mixture is thermostated at a temperature of 38-40 °C. The reaction mixture flow rate is adjusted so as to ensure a total stationary time of 4 hours. The separation of crude biodiesel from the crude glycerol resulted as by-product result is achieved by decantation. The biodiesel is then submitted to a distillation process, for removing both the tert-butanol used as reaction medium and the exceeding methanol and, finally, to obtain the purified biodiesel.The Romanian research institute is looking for commercial agreement with technical assistance to develop, homologate and introduce the technology intro production.
In the commercial agreement with technical assistance, the partner will scale-up the technology at pilor level by using technical assistance and qualified personnel according by the research institute. For this tehcnology was applied for patent applied in Romanian but is not yet granted.
Advantages and Innovations:
Main advantages of the offer:
- Increases the installation productivity by significantly reducing the production cycle time and the process steps required for the purification of the finished product.
- Significant reduction of energy consumption due to lower reaction temperatures.
- Simplified technological scheme, due to the reduction of purification stages for crude biodiesel compared to conventional procedures.
- An alternative more environmentally friendly as compared to the conventional process because it does not require wastewater treatment.
- Is obtained 98% purified biodiesel
Stage of Development:
Under development/lab tested
IPs:
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted
