Valorization of spent coffee grounds by 2-methyloxolane as bio-based solvent extraction This study attempts to shed light on the efficacy of the solvent 2-methyloxolane (2-MeOx) as an alternative for hexane in defatting spent coffee grounds (SCG). Higher lipid yields were obtained with the bio-based solvent dry 2-MeOx (13.67%) and water-saturated 2-MeOx (15.84%) compared to hexane oil […]
Higher Yield and Polyphenol Content in Olive Pomace Extracts Using 2-Methyloxolane as Bio-Based Solvent
An MDPI Scientific article in the Foods category, 7 May 2022 In accordance with circular economy principals, the OP (Olive Pomace ) is a by-product that is rich in bioactive compounds and that can be valorised through the recovery of residual oil and antioxidant compounds, mainly polyphenols, that are largely lost and at the end […]
An MDPI Scientific article in the Processes category, 24 April 2022 The extraction of oil from oilseeds generates large volumes of oilseed by-products rich in proteins, fibres, minerals and secondary metabolites that can be valued. It also provides an overview of alternative solvents and some of the unconventional processes used as a replacement to the conventional extraction of […]
