Enzymes For Biodiesel
Biodiesel is a renewable energy source unlike other petroleum products that will vanish in years to come. It can be produced on demand and causes less pollution compared to the Petroleum Diesel. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, non - toxic, and essentially free of Sulphur and Aromatics.
The use of Biodiesel helps reduce dependence on finite fossil fuel reserves. Biodiesel emissions have decreased levels of Hydrocarbons and Nitrated compounds that have been identified as potential cancer-causing compounds. Biodiesel is typically made by chemically reacting lipids with an Alcohol producing Fatty Acid Esters.
With extensive R&D, specialised Enzymes Complexes have been developed for Esterification of the Oils to produce Biodiesel. In the Enzymatic process, there is no soap & no caustic formation. Less than tenth of the energy consumed in the chemical process is required in the Enzymatic process. The Enzyme provides plant flexibility and it allows expanding the feedstock selection to multi-functional plants working with cheaper feedstocks. The major economic benefit of Enzymes comes in their ability to handle a variety of inexpensive and high FFAs feedstocks such as Brown Grease, Acid Oils, Used Cooking Oil, Animal Fat, etc
