Recycling of immobilized enzymes using rotating bed reactor technology
Poster on study of catalyst recycling during esterification and transesterification reactions with immobilized lipases in rotating bed reactors. Data from several laboratories showed that no attrition or grinding occurred and that no filtration was necessary between reaction cycles. The production capacity was estimated to 50 kilograms per gram of catalyst thanks to the high catalyst stability.
Conditions: This study comprised several different laboratories, immobilized enzymes, and conditions for performing esterification and transesterification reactions using a SpinChem® rotating bed reactor (RBR). The details of every reaction are displayed in connection to each figure on the poster. This poster was displayed at Biocat2016 - the 8th international congress on biocatalysis, at Hamburg University of Technology, Germany, August 28th to September 1st, 2016.
