Keeping the glycerol in biodiesel

    Research output: Research - peer-reviewArticle

    Abstract

    Carl Lira and his coworkers at Michigan State University have developed a process in solving the shortcomings in reacting the plant oil feedstock with methanol. This process has been awarded US patent 7,321,052 and assigned to Michigan State University. The process is continuous using solid catalysts producing glycerol acetals, which can be used in diesel fuels.
