AbstractThe purpose of this international panel is to bring to the conference participants some most recent innovative research related to biodiesel production. The presentation will cover two parts. The first part includes two presentations on heterotrophic culture of lipid rich microorganisms for biodiesel feedstock production. The second part is on enzymatic processing of oil (or lipid) to biodiesel. Availability of feedstock is the limiting factor for developing a sustainable biofuel industry. Developing non-food based, highly productive alternative feedstocks is the focus of many current research and development efforts. Algae have attracted great attention for such an application due to its potential of high productivity per unit area, while not depleting arable cropland like conventional feedstocks. While phototrophic algae has been the focus of interest, the use of other microorganisms such as heterotrophic algae, yeast, and fungi as sources of lipid should also be explored. Commercial opportunities of such processes have been continuously examined for almost 100 years. However, such opportunities are currently confined to the production of the very high valued oils. In a heterotrophic process, the microorganisms use organic carbon as the energy and carbon source, thus their growth is not susceptible to light limitation, an advantage over phototrophic processes. Additionally, organic carbons contained in waste and wastewaters can also be potentially used as the carbon source in such a system. The first presentation of this panel will be given by Professor Zongbao Zhao, Dalian Institute of Chemistry and Physics, Chinese Academy of Science, Dalian, China. In his presentation, Professor Zhao will summarize the research and development work on strain screening, modification, and culture condition optimization of various types of heterotrophic microorganisms. The second presentation will be given by Professor Shulin Chen of Washington State University, Pullman, Washington. Dr. Chen will report their patented process for producing poly unsaturated fatty acids and lipid using algae and fermentative process for producing oil-rich yeast and hydrogen from wastes. The third presentation will be given by Professor Tianwei Tan of Beijing University of Chemical Technology. Dr. Tan’s presentation will focus on non-traditional biodiesel processing using enzymatic processes versus chemical catalysis. This technology has been successfully commercialized with many advantages over traditional processes.
