Oleochemicals

Overview

Oleochemicals are chemicals derived from renewable sources of vegetable oil and animal fat; they are alternatives to petrochemicals which are based on nonrenewable sources such as coal, crude oil and natural gas. Vegetable oil began to be used as the main raw material for oleochemicals industry after 1980. Crude palm oil (CPO) and palm kernel oil (PKO) are commonly used alternatives to be processed into various types of derivatives, as raw materials for its downstream industries, for both categories of food (including cooking oil, margarine, ice cream) or non-food (such as soaps, detergents, pharmaceutical products, cosmetics, industrial lubricants, agricultural chemicals and biofuel).
