Glucose is usually the most widely used carbon source in the production of xanthan gum (Rosalam & England, 2005), but other sources have been successfully studied to substitute and cheapen the process, such as whey (Nitschke, Rodrigues, & Schinatto, 2001), apple juice residue (Druzian & Pagliarini, 2007), soluble compounds of the green coconut shell (Nery, Cruz, & Druzian, 2013), cassava whey (Brandao, Esperidiao, & Druzian, 2010), sugarcane juice (Brandao, Nery, Machado, Esperidiao, & Druzian, 2008), lignocellulosic agro-industrial wastes (Silva et al., 2018) and glycerin from biodiesel (Brandao et al., 2013).
In this study, we carried out microvisual and core flooding experiments, comparing the polymer displacement characteristics in medium viscosity oil with glycerin flooding, using the same viscosity of the polymer solutions, and analyzed the mechanism of the elasticity effect on medium viscosity oil recovery, concluding that the elasticity contributes to oil recovery after water flooding at a different water sweep efficiency.
Glycerin can be converted in the rumen into volatile fatty acid, particularly propionic acid, and butyric acid, which are precursors for glucose synthesis in the liver via gluconeogenesis.
Among the possible uses of glycerin generated during biodiesel production, it can be highlighted its application in the feed for ruminants since it constituted an energy-rich product (4.320kcal of crude energy [kg.sup.-1] for pure glycerol) with high utilization efficiency (MENTEN et al., 2008) able to replace corn in a diet and reduce production costs.
