The purpose of this work is to investigate the influence of n-hexane addition on in situ transesterification of a solid raw material for biodiesel production. Extraction and reaction of macroalgae oil has been performed simultaneously in a batch reactor adding n-hexane with the reactants. In order to analyze the influence of n-hexane on the(More)
The volumetric mass transfer coefficients at different axial positions in a bubble column were measured using a conductivity method. The absorption process of CO 2 in monoethanolamine solutions was carried out in a prismatic column 0.06 m side and 1.03 m height. Measurements were conducted at various gas flow rates and amine concentration. The local mass(More)
Nowadays microwave radiation is being researched to produce biodiesel from different raw materials due to the many advantages that this technology presents compared to traditional transesterification, such as shorter reaction times and less amount of heat energy to obtain biodiesel. The aim of this research was to explore the possibility of carrying out the(More)
