Since the fatty acid ester profile of a given biofuel is relatively consistent with the source’s fatty acid profile, the properties of the biodiesel produced from a particular feedstock exhibit predictable quality. Thus, lipid fractions and the fatty acid composition of stationary growth-phase cultures of the local strains of the diatoms Skeletonema… CONTINUE READING
