AF16002 REFINE project- Optimization of the refining process of vegetable oils and fats (BO-64-001-003, BO-46-002-021, BO-33.04-002-014)

Project: EZproject

Project Details


The project is divided into the following underlying objectives:

1. Development of mitigation strategies for reducing 3-MCPD, 2-MCPD and glycidol process contaminants

2. Pilot plant scale testing of the selected mitigation strategies

3. Development of chemical analytical methods for 3-MCPD, 2-MCPD and glycidol and their reaction intermediates

4. The development of multiresponse kinetic models for prediction of the formation of process contaminants
