LIPES PROJECT WORKSHOP – Life Integrated Process for the Enzymatic Splitting of Triglycerides

    The LIPES project is dedicated to bringing the first market replication of greener and healthier fatty acids with the scale-ip to pre-industrial level of a new environmentally friendly alternative to the traditionnal and current splitting routes of triglycerides. 

    The objective was to create high purity bio-based intermediates and end products from vegetable oils and fats: New low trans FA for food application, high quality fatty acids leading to new grades of C36 and C44 dimer acids and co-polyesters.

    The LIPES approach replaces current thermal hydrolysis and saponification production routes, instead using a new enzyme-based, environmentally friendly alternative.

    Using this approach makes the process far more resource efficient, saving at least 45% water, 70% enzymes and 80% energy over current approaches
