Glycerol removal from biodiesel using membrane

2010-9-1  Biodiesel is commercially produced most frequently via alkali-catalyzed (e.g., sodium hydroxide (NaOH), potassium hydroxide (KOH), and sodium methoxide (NaOCH 3)) transesterification with methanol, to form esters and glycerol, which results in a relatively short reaction time.The reversible nature of the transesterification means that the reaction can never reach 100% completion.

Accelerating the separation of emulsified oil products ...

2020-9-1  A successful transesterification reaction is signified by the separation of biodiesel from the glycerol by-product after an optimized reaction time of 0.5–1 h , , . Due to the density difference and low solubility of glycerol in biodiesel (alkyl ester of fatty acids), the separation is usually accomplished by a long-time gravitational settling.

2010-4-15  In the separation by decantation, the biodiesel and glycerol mixture is rested in tanks. The separation cost is low, but it is a slow process. In the centrifugation process, the mixture is fed into centrifuges for separation. Although the separation time is greatly reduced, the investment required and the operating costs are high , .

Biodiesel is obtained by the transesterification of vegetable oil (or fat) and alcohol, with methanol being the most used alcohol. Methanol can be replaced by ethanol; however, this alcohol acts as a surfactant in the reaction mixture, promoting a stable dispersion of the glycerol in biodiesel, which hinders the separation of the glycerol-biodiesel phases.

In batch processing, gravity separation is used, and the products remain in the reactor; the reactor then becomes a settler or decanter. Once the reaction is finished, the product mixture then sits without agitation. After 4-8 hours, the glycerol layer settles at the bottom (because it has higher gravity) and the biodiesel settles at the top.
