IOC achieves breakthrough in use of non-edible oil

Interesting News indeed ..
State-owned Indian Oil Corp (IOC) on Monday said it has developed technology that will help advance the use of non-edible oil extracted from plants like jatropha (bio-diesel) in auto fuels. "IOC has successfully developed and commercialised a technology to co-process non-edible vegetable oil in the existing Diesel Hydrotreating (DHDT) units of a petroleum refinery to make bio-diesel," the company said in a statement. This is first time in India, and possibly the first in the world, when jatropha oil has been used for co-processing in a petroleum refinery. Also Read: Oil ministry recommends natural gas price hike to $6.7 This technology for co-processing of jatropha oil has been developed by IOC's R&D centre of located at Faridabad. The company termed this as a "major technological breakthrough that can be a game changer for advancing use of bio-diesel in the country and ensuring ready acceptance of the fuel by the automobile industry"

Acesulfame potassium

Acesulfame Potassium is an artificial sweetner.
This is of interest to Entrepreneurs...
Applications in Pharmaceutical Formulation or Technology :
Acesulfame potassium is used as an intense sweetening agent in
cosmetics, foods, beverage products, table-top sweeteners, vitamin
and pharmaceutical preparations, including powder mixes, tablets,
and liquid products. It is widely used as a sugar substitute in
compounded formulations,(1) and as a toothpaste sweetener.(2)
The approximate sweetening power is 180–200 times that of
sucrose, similar to aspartame, about one-third as sweet as sucralose,
one-half as sweet as sodium saccharin, and about 4-5 times sweeter
than sodium cyclamate.(3) It enhances flavor systems and can be
used to mask some unpleasant taste characteristics
How is acesulfame potassium made?
Acesulfame potassium is made from a process that involves the transformation of an organic
intermediate, acetoacetic acid, and its combination with the naturally occurring mineral,
potassium, to form a highly stable, crystalline sweetener.
