Biomethanol Production from the Glycerol Byproduct of the Biodiesel Production Process, a Proposition

EUGÊNIA ALMEIDA, CID ANDRADE, ONÉLIA DOS SANTOS

Abstract


Currently, studies have been carried out with the objective of developing alternative fuels, which are sustainable and renewable. The proposal of this work is to present methodologies present in the literature that provide the conversion of glycerol to biogas and, from biogas to the production of biomethanol. Thus, to propose the study of a process plant, based on simulations and data obtained experimentally, to carry out the conversion of glycerol into biogas and convert the biogas into biomethanol. With the purpose of producing methanol from renewable sources. This work also proposes, the mass and energy integration in the biodiesel production plant, once, that the biomethanol produced can be used in the process itself.
