How enzymatic biodiesel works

Novozymes’ enzymatic production process uses a liquid lipase – Novozymes Eversa® Transform – that catalyzes the production of FAME from glycerides as well as FFA.

The reaction is carried out in a mixed batch tank operation. By controlling the reaction conditions, it is possible to ensure a minimum of FFA (typically around 2%) which is eliminated by a very simple and robust polishing step, call “the one pot process”
