Abstract:-As the demand and production of biodiesel grows faster rate, the commercial utilization of the glycerol is increasing rapidly. This research work was carried out to analyze the crude glycerol to obtain purified glycerol using best suitable ion exchange resin and studied its alkalinity, ash content, water content and matter organic non glycerol present it also obtained good percentage of glycerol by utilising this resin. The conventional methods of glycerol purification such as neutralization, evaporation, purification and refining steps. Novel methods such as Ion exchange and membrane separation. The use of ion exchange resins for treatment of crude glycerol needs to be explored, but very few resins been used for purification of glycerol and need to undergo the purification study by using other ion exchange resins and check its purity level.
Ion Exchange (IX)
"The removal of perchlorate from waters using ion-exchange resins" by Adriano Rosa Vieira
Effectively removing contaminants from liquids, providing successful separation, and efficiently catalyzing reactions. Ion exchange IX is the reversible interchange of ions between a solid and a liquid such as water. Ion exchange resins remove harmful contaminants from liquids, replacing them with beneficial, desired ions. Ion exchange is used in water treatment, including water softening, industrial demineralization, condensate polishing, ultrapure water production, and wastewater treatment.
