Technical Document

Brief Overview

Palm acid oil (PAO) is a by-product obtained from the refining of palm oil. Palm Acid Oil specifications contain mainly of Free Fatty Acid (FFA) up to 50% and neutral oil, with 2-3% moisture and other impurities. It is similar to palm fatty acid distillate, however FFA is generally lower in palm acid oil compare to palm fatty acid distillate. 

Manufacturing Process

Palm Acid Oil (PAO) is a byproduct derived from the refining of palm oil. Harvesting oil-rich palm fruits is the first step in the process, after which the oil is mechanically extracted. Sludge is produced during the refining process, which removes contaminants from the crude palm oil. Centrifugation is used to remove this unfavorable component-filled sludge in order to extract palm acid oil. Applications for PAO, a black, viscous liquid with a high content of free fatty acids, include bioenergy, animal feed, and soap manufacturing. Sustainable methods are being used by the palm oil industry more and more to solve social and environmental issues related to palm oil production.

Animal Feed Manufacturing

In the manufacturing of animal feed, palm acid oil (PAO) is used as a raw material

Biodiesel Industry

Palm acid oil (PAO) is used as the base material for biodiesel manufacturing.

Chemical Intermediates

Palm acid oil is used to manufacture palm-based different fatty acids for industrial uses. Mainly palmitic acid, oleic acid, stearic acid, and linoleic acid are manufactured from palm acid oil. Since it is cheaper compared to crude palm oil, so it finds applications in the manufacturing of low-cost fatty acids for industrial applications.

Palm-based Fatty Acids Manufacturing

Palm acid oil also can be used to manufacture various palm-based fatty acids such as palmitic acid, oleic acid, stearic acid, and linoleic acid.

Soap Manufacturing

Palm acid oil (PAO) is used as a raw material in the production process of laundry soaps
