Procedure to obtain Biodiesel from oils with high fatty acid concentration using poly-styrensulphonic acid as a catalyst.

Autores:Manuel López Granados, Rafael Mariscal López, Ana Carolina Alba Rubio, Irantzu Sádaba Zubiri
CSIC has patented a process for the production of biodiesel using an acid catalyst. This catalyst has the advantages of (1) being soluble in polar solvents (water, methanol), which makes it very active in a homogeneous phase and (2) being reusable, because the catalysts could be recovered by ultra-filtration. It has been tested in the biodiesel synthesis from oils with high content in free fatty acids, triglycerides trans-sterification and for the production of furfural by dehydration of xylose.
