Improved Production of Biolubricants from Soybean Oil and Different Polyols Via Esterification Reaction Catalyzed by Immobilized Lipase from Candida Rugosa Book Review:

Graphical abstract: Highlights: Lipase extract from C. rugosa was found very useful to produce biolubricants from soybean oil. The free lipase cannot be used at medium scale. The immobilization in Accurel enabled the reaction maintaining the good properties of the enzyme. The immobilized lipase could be reused several reaction cycles. Abstract: Three commercial lipases, Lipomod 34MDP (free lipase from Candida rugosa ), Lipozyme RM IM (immobilized lipase from Rhizomucor miehei ) and Novozym 435 (immobilized lipase B from Candida antarctica ) were evaluated as catalysts in the production of biolubricant base oils. This was accomplished via the esterification of free fatty acids obtained from soybean-oil hydrolysis and different polyols (neopentyl glycol, NPG; trimethylolpropane, TMP; and pentaerythritol, PE). Reactions carried out with free C. rugosa lipase showed the highest conversions for the three polyols (97% for NPG, 100% for TMP and 55% for PE) after 24h, while Novozym 435 and Lipozyme RM IM resulted, respectively, in 65% and 92% for NPG, 15% and 39% for TMP and 1% and 0% for PE. Then, Accurel MP1000 (a microporous polypropylene support, PP) was used to immobilize the C. rugosa lipase; enzyme loading used was 0.3mg/g. The zymography analysis showed that the protein band of 60KDa present in the C. rugosa lipase extract was the main protein responsible for the extract activity in the biolubricant synthesis and it was successfully immobilized onto the support. The immobilized lipase (34MDP-PP) showed conversions of 99% for NPG and 92% for TMP, after 24h of reaction, maintaining the results obtained with the free enzyme. The 34MDP-PP could be reused for six consecutive reaction cycles without a reduction in the final conversion, using NPG and TMP as substrates. Using Lipozyme RM IM, the conversion decreased from 92 to 56% after six consecutive reactions. The soybean esters of NPG and TMP showed good viscosity indexes, higher than 200.

Two step Enzymatic Production of Environmentally Friendly Biolubricants Using Castor Oil Enzyme Selection and Product Characterization Book Review:

Highlights: Castor oil hydrolysis using castor-seed lipases gives a high yield of unmodified COFFA. Molecules with good lubricant characteristics are produced by the esterification of COFFA. Estolides from COFFA esterification by CRL are the main reaction product. CRL prefers ricinoleic acid as a nucleophile compared to polyols. Estolide biolubricant properties are outstanding except for high acidity. Abstract: We performed two-step enzymatic biolubricant production: castor oil hydrolysis and esterification of castor oil free fatty acids (COFFA) rich in ricinoleic acid. The hydrolysis step utilized castor seeds as catalyst yielding 93.13 ± 5.9% COFFA in only 1 h. In the esterification step, C. rugosa lipase (CRL) decreased the acidity by over 80% after 96 h, utilizing as polyols neopenthylglicol (NPG), trimethylolpropane (TMP) and pentaerytritol (PE) and showed about 70% acidity decrease without polyols, indicating the production of COFFA polymers (estolides). Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) confirmed estolides as the main product, reaching a polymerization degree of 6/7 without polyols, 4 in the presence of PE and ricinoleic acid dimers in the presence of NPG and TMP. Analyses of biolubricant properties showed that the best product was the estolide with a polymerization degree of 6/7: viscosity index of 162, oxidation stability of 51 min and pour point of −42 °C.

Refining Used Lubricating Oils Book Review:

Used lubricating oil is a valuable resource. However, it must be re-refined mainly due to the accumulation of physical and chemical contaminants in the oil during service. Refining Used Lubricating Oils describes the properties of used lubricating oils and presents ways these materials can be re-refined and converted into useful lubricants as well as other products. It provides an up-to-date review of most of the processes for used lubricating oil refining that have been proposed or implemented in different parts of the world, and addresses feasibility and criteria for selecting a particular process. The book begins with an overview of lubricating oil manufacturing, both petroleum-based and synthetic-based. It reviews the types and properties of lubricating oils and discusses the characteristics and potential of used lubricating oils. The authors describe the basic steps of used oil treatment including dehydration, distillation or solvent extraction, and finishing. They explore the combustion of used oil for use as fuel, covering chemistry and equipment, fuel oil properties, and combustion emissions. The book considers alternative processing options such as refinery processing and re-refining. It also reviews the major refining processes that have been suggested over the years for used oil. These include acid/clay, simple distillation, combinations of distillation and hydrogenation, solvent extraction, filtration, and coking processes. The book addresses economic, life cycle assessment, and other criteria for evaluating the attractiveness of an oil recycling project, examining various costs and presenting an economic evaluation method using an Excel spreadsheet that can be downloaded from the publisher’s website. The book concludes with a chapter offering insights on how to choose the most suitable process technology.
