Pretreatments Using Massive Microfluidic Arrays: Degumming & Neutralization

Pretreatments Using Massive Microfluidic Arrays: Degumming & Neutralization

Historically, purification processes used in the degumming and pretreatment of food oils and fuel production feedstocks required substantial factory footprint and a high degree of complexity. These antiquated processes suffer yield losses that accumulate with each consecutive unit operation with oil lost to neutralization soap stock, clays, activated silica, and DE. Furthermore, the cost of…

Biofuels Degumming Pretreatments Using Massive Microfluidic Arrays

Biofuels Degumming Pretreatments Using Massive Microfluidic Arrays

Biofuels offer a sustainable alternative to fossil fuel analogues and a path to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants in the transportation sector. Unlike Petroleum-derived fuels, biofuels can be synthesized to have a narrow distribution of molecular weights in the mixture which impacts important properties, such as boiling point, viscosity, cetane number, density,…
