Patent
Neste Oil | Date: 2015-06-16

The present invention relates to microorganism biomass and a feed or food composition comprising said biomass for use in preventing or reducing the adverse effects of pathogens in animal or human digestive tract.


Patent
Neste Oil | Date: 2015-06-16

A method is disclosed for recovering lipids from microbial biomass, and for producing lipids. In the method, an aqueous suspension includes fermentation broth containing oleaginous yeast biomass which is subjected to hydrothermal treatment and lipids are recovered from the biomass by solvent extraction.

Patent
Neste Oil | Date: 2017-02-08

The invention relates to a process for the manufacture of diesel range hydrocarbons wherein a feed is hydrotreated in a hydrotreating step and isomerised in an isomerisation step, and a feed comprising fresh feed containing more than 5 wt % of free fatty acids and at least one diluting agent is hydrotreated at a reaction temperature of 200-400 C., in a hydrotreating reactor in the presence of catalyst, and the ratio of the diluting agent/fresh feed is 5-30:1.


The present invention relates to thermal conversion of ketoacids, including methods for increasing the molecular weight of ketoacids, the method comprising the steps of providing in a reactor a feedstock comprising at least one ketoacid. The feedstock is then subjected to one or more C-C-coupling reaction(s) by heating the feedstock to temperature of 200 - 500 C in the absence of a catalyst.


The present invention relates to a method for preparing a composition having antimicrobial activity composition which is derived from spent fermentation broth, the composition having antimicrobial activity and the use of the composition as an antibiotic or as an additive for feed or food.

Patent
Neste Oil | Date: 2017-04-26

The present invention relates to a method for recovering lipids from microbial biomass and to a method for producing lipids using the method for recovering lipids. In the method, an aqueous suspension comprising fermentation broth containing oleaginous yeast biomass is subjected to hydrothermal treatment and lipids are recovered from the biomass by solvent extraction.


The present invention relates to catalytic conversion of ketoacids, including methods for increasing the molecular weight of ketoacids, the method comprising the steps of providing in a reactor a feedstock comprising at least one ketoacid. The feedstock is then subjected to one or more C-C-coupling reaction(s) in the presence of hydrogen, and in the presence of a catalyst system having both hydrogenation activity and C-C-coupling activity.

Photofuel studies and advances the biocatalytic production of alternative liquid transportation fuels, which require only sunlight, CO2 and water. Microbial cells directly excrete hydrocarbon and long chain alcohol fuel compounds to the medium from which they are separated, without the need to harvest biomass. This significantly improves the costs and energy balances as only a minimum of nutrients is required for self-replication of the biocatalyst, whilst cell harvesting, drying and lipid extraction is omitted. Such minimum-input systems are compatible with operation on degraded or desert land which avoids the pitfalls of most of the currently available biofuel technologies. The products are drop-in fuels that fully or partially replace their fossil counterparts without the need for new infrastructure. To set a benchmark for alternative solar fuels, three research groups will collaborate in the advancement of the biocatalysts from TRL 3. The best biocatalytic system(s) will be up-scaled and operated outdoors in photobioreactors modified for direct fuel separation at a scale of several cubic meters (TRL 4-5). The identification of optimal future fuel blends with a fossil fuel base and Photofuel biofuels as additives, as well as the analysis of performance and emissions in car or truck engines, will be evaluated by the oil- and automotive-industry partners. The entire pathway will be assessed for environmental and economic performance as well as social acceptance of large scale production in rural communities and by the consumer. All results will be combined to a business development plan, which clearly identifies the opportunities but also the challenges prior to an economic fuel production in compliance to the EC Fuel Quality Directive.
