Novel catalytic solutions for oleochemical processes

Author(s): DUPAIN, Xander* ; LEE, Roy Z** ; TRIPATHY Saumendra ‡ ; ZWIJNENBURG, Aalbert *

Catalytic processes are key to meeting the growing demand for sustainable industrial chemicals derived from oils and fats, thus ensuring the sustainability and profitability of the oleochemical industry. This article focuses on novel catalytic solutions for both existing and new processes, giving focus to raw materials, energy and the environment. Practical examples will be given of lower-metal catalysts, processing of lower-grade feedstocks, and the treatment of fatty alcohols and methyl esters.
