Deoxygenation of fatty acids to transport fuels over supported metal-organic framework membranes
Biofuel production technologies have recently received considerable attention as CO2 emission of biofuels is lower compared to conventional fuels. Typical sources of biofuels are natural oils and fats (e.g., animal fats, plant and seed oils). They are complex mixtures of fatty acid esters. Removing oxygen from fatty acids (deoxygenation) leads to the formation of paraffinic hydrocarbons that can potentially serve as or be converted to direct replacements for traditional petroleum-derived liquid transportation fuels and paraffinic petrochemical feedstocks. Deoxygenation of unsaturated fatty acids ...
