Studies using heterogeneous catalysts for the hydrolysis reaction of edible oils still are in early stage. Recently, it was found that the aqueous solution of glycerol, formed after the hydrolysis, may suffer the reaction of aqueous phase reform (APR) producing H2 and CO2. The H2 can be used in the hydrogenation of unsaturated free fatty acids formed, allowing to obtain a specific fatty acid of higher added value. The present work demonstrates that you can tune in the final product by choosing the appropriate sequential catalyst system as shown in the figure below.

Ricardo Reis Soares has completed his PhD from Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1997 and Post-doctoral studies from Oklahoma University and University of Wisconsin, USA. He is a Coordinator of the Biofuels Graduate Program at Federal University of Uberlandia, Brazil. He has published more than 25 papers in reputed journals, and has been working with several Brazilian industries, such as PETROBRAS and CBMM.
