Dataset for "Hydrothermal conversion of lipid-extracted microalgae hydrolysate in the presence of isopropanol and steel furnace residues"

Microalgae have a high potential as a feedstock for the production of biofuels, either indirectly, through the extraction of lipids, which can be transformed into biodiesel, or directly via whole cell conversion using hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL). Both approaches have disadvantages, due to the high cost of cultivating microalgae with sufficient lipid content (>40%), while the whole cell conversion produces low quality oils, which require significant further upgrading. This work investigated the possibility of realising the benefits of both processes, by studying the liquefaction reaction of a lipid-extracted algae hydrolysate. Included in this dataset are the Excel spreadsheets containing the raw data presented in the linked publication and detailing the mass balances, the metal analysis and the characterisation of the products.

Documentation

Data collection method:

Mass balance data was collected gravimetriclly, all other data was collected as per the methods section. IPA (iso-propyl alcohol)/water property data was calculated according to standard methods detailed in the spreadsheet.

Data processing and preparation activities:

Calculations were performed in Microsoft Excel 2016.

Technical details and requirements:

The data are presented as three Excel spreadsheets, providing the SEM–EDX (scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy) analysis, the reaction yields, and the IPA/water property data, respectively.
