Abstract

To overcome the high energy-consuming process of microalgae drying, a two-step lipase catalysis technique for the preparation of biodiesel from microalgae lipid of Chlorella spp. was developed. In the first step, free fatty acids (FAAs) and triacylglycerols (TAGs) are released after cell disruption...

AbstractFull Text

Microbial contamination of stored diesel/biodiesel fuel over time and the consequent changes in the fuel chemical composition is of serious concern. The use of biocides has also been shown to be an effective strategy to address this challenge but in some countries like Brazil, no products have been...

AbstractFull Text

Minor components found in biodiesel can affect its stability and cold flow properties. Without extensive post treatments, trace compounds such as sterol glycosides (SG) can remain at unacceptable levels in finished biodiesel fuels. This study proposes to remove SG from reacted Fatty Acid Methyl...

AbstractFull Text

Mucor indicus with different morphologies was used for ethanol production and Pb2+ biosorption. With increasing Pb2+ concentration in the cultivation medium, the fungus morphology changed from purely filamentous to mostly filamentous and the biosorption capacity was increased. The maximum...
