Indian researchers produce chemicals from glycerin

December 7, 2017 |

In India, Outlook India is reporting that researchers from Chemical Engineering and Process Development Division together with colleagues from the National Collection of Industrial Microorganisms Center, National Chemical Laboratory, Pune have developed a method to produce 2,3- butanediol (BDO), 1,3- Propanediol (PDO)  – along with acetoin and ethanol from glycerol using bacterial strains. By integrating these chemical processing methods into biodiesel manufacturing facilities in a biorefinery model, the researchers say biodiesel producers can greatly improve their economics.
