  Worapon Kiatkittipong教授 (シルパコーン大学・タイ)
   “Lipid-based biorefinery research aligned with Thai strategic industry alliances”

4.概    要(Abstract)
Thailand is the 7th world ranked for biodiesel producer (includes renewable diesel which also known as Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil, HVO or green diesel); however, these industries and supply chains are expected to be challenged by the disruptive of EV soon. Research on lipid-based biorefinery aims to support biodiesel producers to alleviate the threat of EVs and reduce carbon emissions over the next two decades of this transition period. Real waste feedstock obtained from cooperative Thai industry are successfully implemented for biodiesel and green diesel production. In addition, developing novel valorization routes to produce useful compounds from e.g. fatty acid methyl ester (biodiesel), green diesel and the by-product, glycerol have been demonstrated. Process and energy intensification techniques were applied in order to overcome the process limitation.
