Fatty amines from palm oil and palm kernel oil

Author(s): RUPILIUS, Wolfgang *

In this article, the most important technologies to produce fatty amines from fatty acids and fatty alcohols are described. Surprisingly, none of these technologies are practised in the palm oil producing countries. While Southeast Asia became the global leader in the field of fatty acids and and fatty alcohols, the area of fatty amines has been completely ignored until now. The reasons for this abstention will be analysed, and possible concepts for a future development of this industry in the region will be evaluated.
