Technical Document

Brief Overview

Refined glycerine (also known as glycerol or glycerin) is a basic sugar alcohol that has three hydroxyl groups that give it water solubility and hygroscopic properties. This colorless, fragrance-free, crystal-clear liquid has a high boiling point and viscosity, which indicate its inherent sweetness and low toxicity. It comes from petrochemical feedstock and has a density of 1.26 g/cm³. It is used in many industries, such as food, medicine, cosmetics, personal care, and biodiesel manufacturing.

Manufacturing Process


Thorough threshing is the first step in treating palm fruit, which removes the main stem and any associated spikelets.


Steaming palm fruits stops them from hydrolyzing and oxidizing, which makes it easier for the resin, gum, and kernel to separate.


Sterilized fruits are mechanically mixed and pounded to liberate palm oil with the help of extra heat.


Processed fruit is extracted from its oil by hydraulic pressure extraction.

Oil clarification

After being extracted, the oil is purified by adding hot water to remove impurities and then filtering the mixture.


 Free fatty acids are removed by solvent extraction using methanol, which is essential to halting oil oxidation.


Further refining is required to produce refined glycerine since hydrolysis breaks down triglycerides into glycerol and fatty acids.

Glycerin pre-treatment

Distillation is one of the separation techniques used to purify the glycerine and fatty acid combination.


To create completely purified glycerine, the leftover methanol from the deacidification procedure is evaporated.

Pharmaceuticals Industry

The pharmaceutical industry relies heavily on glycerine as a raw ingredient for drugs, suppositories, cough cures, and anesthetics.

Cosmetic Industry

Glycerine retains water in cosmetic products, extending their shelf life and maintaining their softness and creaminess.

Food Industry

Glycerine is used as a sweetener in a variety of food products and as a hydration aid in sports.

Industrial Applications

Research on glycerine as a gasoline additive to reduce hazardous emissions is ongoing. Its lubricating qualities improve mechanical efficiency, lower friction, release heat, and stop overheating. Due to its economic feasibility, glycerine is used in a variety of industrial applications and chemical intermediates.
