Hydrolysis of olive oil into fatty acids by lipase in a flat membrane module is reported. Lipase was immobilized by adsorption onto a hydrophilic cellulose acetate membrane. Hydrolysis was carried out by circulating pure olive on the enzyme side of the membrane and water phase on the other side. Conversion reached 85 % after 50 hours reaction time.
