Viable pathway towards bioeconomy for lipids and biomaterials with spent coffee grounds
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 […]
A review of bio-refinery of oilseeds
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 […]
