- ... Erucic acid (C22:1, Δ13Z) is an interesting building block for the oleochemical industry and is abundantly present in Crambe abyssinica seed oil (∼59% of C22:1). For the enrichment of fatty acids (FA), lipases can be employed and we have found in a previous protein engineering study suitable variants of lipase A from Moesziomyces antarcticus (CAL-A) for the enrichment of C22:1 from Crambe oil deri ...

- ... Biodiesel is usually produced from edible oils which compete with the food market. Crambe abyssinica is a non-food crop referred as having high potential for biodiesel production. An entire cycle of seeding, harvesting, oil extraction and biodiesel production was performed with Crambe; probably, the first study carried out with this specie in Portugal aiming to evaluate its full viability.
