New technologies for the extraction and processing of fatty raw materials

At the moment it is relevant to search for new non-traditional sources of fats. The methods of separating fats from algae biomass (Botryococus braunii) and waste from fat processing industries (not suitable for consumption of beef, chicken and other fats) are developed at the Department.

A characteristic feature of algae is the ability to accumulate in the cell to 75% lipids.

As a result of special technological processing of biomass of algae, liquid hydrocarbon products with a gasoline fraction of 35-45%, kerosene 10-15% and a petroleum product of 40-55% can be obtained.

Heterogeneous catalysts of esterification / perestrification processes of fatty raw materials

On the basis of the selected fatty material, the synthesis of fatty acid esters (EHCs) was carried out by the method of alcohol abuse using heterogeneous catalysts.

As heterogeneous catalysts, new cation exchange polymers based on sulphonic acid polyamide, sulfonic acid polyvinyl alcohol and nanocomposite sulfonic acid catalysts, which are the original development of specialists of the Department, were used.

Nanocomposite organo-inorganic catalyst (COE 2.5 mg-eq / g)

Due to the use of cheap raw materials, inexpensive adsorbents and catalysts, the obtained ELCs are attractive and affordable for consumers. They can be used as biofuels, lubricants, plasticizers and more.
