Compressed fluid technologies in European Framework programs

On-going projects

A selection of on-going FP7-projects which involve the use of green, compressed fluids:

Enzymatic synthesis of organic molecules in alternative solvents (HIPENZO)

Continuous production of biodiesel from waste cooking oil using green engineering (NOVABIODIESEL)

Study of the molecular events induced by specific functional foods with a double targeting to effectively reduce cholesterol levels (CHOLESTENOT)

Reforming of crude glycerine in supercritical water to produce methanol for re-use in biodiesel plants (SUPER METHANOL)

Synthesis of new Schiff base derived catalysts: Application towards enantioselective reactions in greener and more sustainable media (ENCAT)

Continuous production of biodiesel from waste cooking oil using green engineering (NOVABIODIESEL)
