Title (EN) REMOVAL OF NITROGEN FROM A CHLOROPHYLL OR PHEOPHYTIN CONTAINING BIOMASS
(FR) ÉLIMINATION DE L'AZOTE À PARTIR D'UNE BIOMASSE CONTENANT DE LA CHLOROPHYLLE OU DES PHÉOPHYTINES
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure relates to refining a product from a biomass containing chlorophyll and/or pheophytins. In particular, a method of refining a product (such as a biofuel) from a photosynthetic organism is disclosed. The photosynthetic organism can be a naturally occurring organism or a genetically modified or altered organism. The method of refining comprises removing nitrogen to obtain the desired product. In some aspects, nitrogen is removed from a chlorophyll and/or pheophytin containing product by enzymatic degradation of chlorophyll and/or pheophytins and subsequent removal of the nitrogen
(FR) La présente invention porte sur le raffinage d'un produit à partir d'une biomasse contenant de la chlorophylle et/ou des phéophytines. En particulier, l'invention porte sur un procédé de raffinage d'un produit (tel qu'un biocarburant) à partir d'un organisme photosynthétique. L'organisme photosynthétique peut être un organisme d'origine naturelle ou un organisme génétiquement modifié ou altéré. Le procédé de raffinage comprend l'élimination de l'azote pour obtenir le produit souhaité. Dans certains aspects, l'azote est extrait d'un produit contenant de la chlorophylle et/ou des phéophytines par décomposition enzymatique de chlorophylle et/ou de phéophytines et extraction subséquente de l'azote.
