ASFA Marine Biotechnology Abstracts

 
 
In marine biotechnology, molecular biology and molecular genetics are applied specifically to marine and aquatic organisms. The field holds great promise - in increased production of seafood, in the development of new therapeutic drugs, in the engineering of microbes that digest and remove environmental and marine pollutants, and in launching myriad ventures having immense economic benefit. An ever-increasing number of researchers are turning their investigations to the sea and its organisms. And ASFA Marine Biotechnology Abstracts - now part of the Cambridge Biotechnology Research Series - is the one database that assembles the findings from these diverse investigations in a single source. The database also features coverage of United States patents. The findings and practical applications summarized in this database will benefit all researchers and managers concerned with the science, technology, and management of marine environments.

    Abstract
    The present study introduced an integrated method for the production of biodiesel from microalgal oil. Heterotrophic growth of Chlorella protothecoides resulted in the accumulation of high lipid content (55%) in cells. Large amount of microalgal oil was efficiently extracted from these heterotrophic cells by using n-hexane. Biodiesel comparable to conventional diesel was obtained from heterotrophic microalgal oil by acidic transesterification. The best process combination was 100% catalyst quantity (based on oil weight) with 56:1 molar ratio of methanol to oil at temperature of 30 degree C, which reduced product specific gravity from an initial value of 0.912 to a final value of 0.8637 in about 4 h of reaction time. The results suggested that the new process, which combined bioengineering and transesterification, was a feasible and effective method for the production of high quality biodiesel from microalgal oil.
