Macro Green Algae (Chlorophyta) Biodiesel Energy Liquid Fuel Synthesis by Single-Step In-situ Transesterification Method

Swati Sonawane, Sanjaykumar Dalvi, Raghunath Pokharkar


Abstract: The present paper was emphases on study of macro green algae from Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra State, India. The macro alga was innovative and very interesting aquatic biomass source for making the energy liquid biodiesel fuel. Algae have a higher photosynthetic activity with respect to terrestrial plants. It was adapt in various growing condition either fresh or marine water without acquiring the land. The collection of macro algae were quite easy than the microalgae. The harvesting and drying processes were play vital role in converting algal biomass into energy liquid fuel. The oil extraction was the important step for the biodiesel synthesis. This step was skipped and algal biomasses directly convert to fatty acid methyl ester by In-situ transesterification method. The single step method can be attractive solution to reduce the chemical like hexane and energy consumption in the overall biodiesel production and eco-friendly. The characterization of obtained product was done by standard analytical methods. The functional group present in product components was studied by FT-IR spectroscopy and its separation with the help of Gas Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy. The product comprises mixture of seven types of fatty acid methyl ester with different retention time and concentration.
