The authors performed melt crystallization experiments by employing a binary mixture of fatty acids as a model biofuel. To account for both the growth of solid layer and the solute distribution at the solid–liquid (S–L) interface during the formation of the solid layer, this article proposed theoretical equations involving heat and mass transfer. As a result, authors confirmed the validity of the proposed equations under the varied crystallization conditions.
