Valorization of Poultry Feather Protein Residues Using Subcritical Water Hydrolysis Public

This experiment analyzed the effect of temperature on subcritical water hydrolysis on natural poultry feathers for the isolation of high-value amino acids. Subcritical water hydrolysis is the process by which water in the range of 100 - 374 C converts and breaks down biomass. The hydrolysis machine was operated at three different temperatures (210, 230, and 250 C) at a constant flow rate of 10 mL / min. Differences between the hydrolysates were defined by performing Total Nitrogen, Chemical Oxygen Demand, and Nelson- Somogyi method testing. Initial hydrolysate analysis testing suggests that a low operating temperature and an operating time below 10 minutes may assist in getting optimum protein levels.
