Revolutionary biodiesel production method of the week: Vitamines!
Now it's the turn of a group of British scientists who have unveiled a new method to purify biodiesel, which is not only cheap but simple and low-toxic as well. The method uses vitamin B4 (choline) in an ionic solution which removes glicerol. If left in the biodiesel, glicerol can harm an engine, so removing it a necessary step of biodiesel production.
"With this method, glicerol is simply swept away from biodiesel and is really a sustainable way of producing the biofuel", said Andrew Abbott, head of the investigators, who belongs to the University of Leicester (England).
