Rapid Lipid-Oil Extraction for Biofuels

LSU AgCenter scientists have developed a method to extract oil from various lipid-containing sources such as seeds, soybeans or algae that can be turned into biofuel. The process uses microwave energy to break down the cell walls of materials to release the oil with a lesser need for solvents and a lower overall use of energy than mechanical methods such as grinding or pressing. This integrated, continuous process allows for faster oil extraction by using rapid heating and pressurization.
