PopisŠpanělská společnost patentoval dva kontinuální procesy pro výrobu biodieselu z rostlinných olejů. První z nich využívá metylacetát při současném snížení produkce glycerinu (vedlejší reakce). Druhý proces využívá metanolu k produkci biodieselu v jednom kroku při současném snížení rozsahu reakce a odstranění vedlejších reakcí (tvorba mýdel).
Společnost hledá partnery se zájmem o licenci a technickou spolupráci.
Summary: A Spanish company has patented two continuous processes to produce biodiesel from vegetable oils. The first uses Methyl acetate which avoids the production of glycerine as a co-product, obtained in place of glycerol triacetate. The second uses methanol generates biodiesel in only a single phase, reducing the reaction rate and eliminating side reactions (formation of soaps). It is looking for companies for license and technical cooperation agreements.
Description: It has been developed new patented methods to produce biodiesel from refined vegetable oils by means of a transesterification process. The first is a continuous process in a single liquid phase which uses methanol and an inert solvent such as Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE). This method leads a highincrease in reaction rates and as well eliminates the dreaded side reactions (formation of soaps). The second patented method uses methyl acetate in place of methanol producing glycerol as a co-product. Besides the company has designed and installed a industrial plant for biofuel production and a secondary plant where it occurs a second transesterification of other esters such as: - Esters of monocarboxylic acids, saturated (lauric, palmitic and stearic of vegetable origin) and unsaturated (oleic and erucic from rapeseed and sunflower) with alcohols (ethyl to decyl), which improve the quality of Fuels (Biodiesel and Petroleum Diesel). - FattyAcid Esters (Vegetable Oil Rapeseed and sunflower, as a renawable raw material) with Fatty Alcohols and / or Neopolioles. The esters produced are biodegradable, eco-compatible and enhance the friction, wear and lubrication being suitable for the formulation of organic oil-based lubricants and Automotive industry.
Advantages and Innovations: - The use of methyl acetate as a reactant in the first process produces glycerol triacetate which improves the characteristics of biofuels and fossil fuel at low temperatures. For this reason this additive has an ecological role. - The use of an an inert co-solvent in the second process permits to enhance the velocity of in methanolysis and promote the formation of a single "liquid phase", improving the solubility of vegetable oil in methanol, yielding no soaps. - Another advantage of these processes is that with a new phase reaction produced a wonderful base oils to formulate Bio lubricants with a high market value. - The improvements are: A process truly continuous and reaction times of about 5 minutes; Reduced investment, maintenance and operation costs (30% -50%); Reduced water consumption; Allowing better scaling with the assembly of larger size plants (250,000 mt / y - 500,000 mt / y); Production of organic additives as by products increasing the qualities of biodiesel and fossil fuels at low temperature conditions.
