Feasibility study for industrial production of fuel additives from glycerol

Author
Organization
Abstract
Glycerol, the main by-product of biodiesel production, has been considered a renewable chemical for large scale production of a new potent fuel-additive, namely solketal tertbutyl ether (STBE). Delta Biovalue BV, a major biodiesel manufacturer in the European Union, Corning Incorporated, a manufacturer of modular Advanced-Flow (TM) glass reactors and SynBioC, a research group with a long-standing interest and know-how in flow and renewable chemistry have collaborated to develop a new process aimed at performing the transformation of glycerol in STBE under flow conditions. The advantages of the highly engineered Corning reactor system, including: high mixing, heat-exchange efficiencies under corrosive flow conditions with low liquid hold-up and high throughput, allowed the development and the intensification of a two-step process with 83 percent global yield. The final goal of this project is to develop a robust, green and safe process being able to produce similar to 12,000 t/y STBE.
