Technical Document


Refined Glycerine, also recognized as glycerol or glycerin, is a basic sugar alcohol with three hydroxyl groups, conferring water solubility and hygroscopic characteristics. This clear, colorless, and odorless liquid, boasting a high boiling point and viscosity, exhibits innate sweetness and minimal toxicity. With a density of 1.26 g/cm³, it stems from petrochemical feedstock and serves an array of industries, encompassing food, medicine, cosmetics, personal care, and biodiesel production.



Initial palm fruit treatment involves threshing to remove the primary stem and attached spikelets.


Steam application to palm fruits prevents hydrolysis and oxidation, facilitating the detachment of kernel, gum, and resin


Mechanically mixing and pounding sterilized fruits releases palm oil, facilitated by additional heat.


Hydraulic pressure extraction is utilized to obtain palm oil from processed fruits.

Oil clarification

Extracted oil undergoes purification, involving hot water addition for impurity removal and subsequent filtration.


Solvent extraction with methanol eliminates free fatty acids, crucial to preventing oil oxidation.


Hydrolysis breaking down triglycerides into glycerol and fatty acids requires further refining for refined glycerine.

Glycerin pre-treatment

Separation processes refine the mixture of glycerine and fatty acids through distillation.


Remaining methanol from the deacidification process is evaporated to produce fully refined glycerine.


Pharmaceuticals Industry
Glycerine plays a pivotal role as a raw material in pharmaceuticals, contributing to medications, suppositories, cough remedies, and anesthetics.

Cosmetic Industry

In cosmetics, glycerine acts as a water retainer, preserving product softness, creaminess, and storage life.

Food Industry

Glycerine finds utility in athletics for hydration and serves as a sweetener in various food products.

Industrial Applications

Ongoing research explores glycerine for fuel additives, mitigating harmful emissions. Its lubricating properties enhance machine performance, reduce friction, dissipate heat, and prevent machinery overheating. Glycerine's economic viability deems it valuable in chemical intermediates and diverse industrial applications.
