(FR) BIOCONVERSION D'ACIDES ORGANIQUES DANS LE PÉTROLE POUR EMPÊCHER LA CORROSION EN RAFFINERIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to the use of microorganisms (biocatalysts), or catalysts derived from these organisms (enzymes), to improve the quality of crude oil and bitumen as an attractive alternative to current upgrading methods. The invention identifies and characterizes the microorganism species, in particular, N. muscorum (UTEX 2209) and Kocuria rhizophilia (ATCC533), that have the capability to biochemically convert organic acids into chemical species that do not possess corrosive properties.
(FR)La présente invention porte sur l'utilisation de micro-organismes (biocatalyseurs), ou de catalyseurs issus de ces organismes (enzymes), pour améliorer la qualité du pétrole brut et du bitume comme alternative intéressante aux procédés de valorisation actuels. L'invention identifie et caractérise les espèces de micro-organisme, en particulier, N. muscorum (UTEX 2209) et Kocuria rhizophilia (ATCC533), qui ont le pouvoir de convertir par voie biochimique des acides organiques en espèces chimiques qui ne possèdent pas de propriétés corrosives.
