Macauba as raw material for biodiesel

terça-feira, fevereiro 05, 2019


The macaúba presents significant potential for production due to high oil content and ability to adapt to dense populations . The potential productivity per unit area resembles the palm, reaching more than 4,000 kilos of oil per hectare . On energy , an important byproduct carbon endocarp and high calorific occurs . 

The oil extracted from the pulp, with a greater potential for the production of biodiesel, and has good characteristics for industrial processing is dominated by oleic acid ( 53 % ) and palmitic ( 19%) and has good features for industrial processing , but has problems severe loss of quality with storage. As with the palm , the fruit must be processed immediately after harvest due to degrade rapidly, increasing the acidity and harming the production of biofuels.
