Reverse techno-economic-environmental analysis carotenoids production microbial oil by the Rhodotorula toruloides oleaginous yeast from the hemicellulose fraction of sugarcane bagasse integrated into the biorefinery ethanol-biodiesel

Grant number: 19/15851-2
Support Opportunities:Scholarships in Brazil - Post-Doctoral
Effective date (Start): November 01, 2019
Effective date (End): April 30, 2023
Field of knowledge:Engineering - Chemical Engineering - Chemical Process Industries
Principal Investigator:Everson Alves Miranda
Grantee:Andreza Aparecida Longati de Oliveira
Host Institution: Faculdade de Engenharia Química (FEQ). Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP). Campinas , SP, Brazil
Associated research grant:16/10636-8 - From the cell factory to the Biodiesel-Bioethanol integrated biorefinery: a systems approach applied to complex problems in micro and macroscales, AP.BIOEN.TEM


The postdoctoral researcher (PD) will work on the topic of synthesis, optimization and reverese technical-economic analysis integrated to the simulation of the biorefinery biodiesel-bioethanol 1G-2G. The PD will develop and update models using the EMSO platform. It should then simulate cases of biorefinery in relation to subprocesses of production of high value products. Emphasis will be on the process of production of oil and carotenoids by the unconventional yeast Rhodotorula toruloides grown in hemicellulosic sugarcane bagasse hydrolysate and related reverse technical- economical analysis. Communication between the PD and the various research subgroups working on different subprojects of the thematic project will be part of his/her activities, since information provided by the researchers in the laboratories of the subgroups and by the simulation group should be a continuous and bidirectional flow.
