Technical Document

Brief Overview

Refined glycerin is a water-soluble, simple straight-chain sugar alcohol with three hydroxyl groups that give it its hygroscopic qualities. It is sometimes referred to as refined glycerine or glycerol. This liquid has a high boiling point, is colorless, odorless, and transparent. It is not very poisonous and tastes good by nature. Its boiling point is 290°C, while its normal melting point is 17.8°C. The density of refined glycerine is 1.26 g/cm³. Petrochemical feedstock is the source. The low toxicity and environmental friendliness of this substance make it useful in a wide range of products, such as food, medicine, cosmetics, and personal hygiene items. This is just one more useful and adaptable byproduct of the biodiesel industry.

Manufacturing Process


The initial stage in palm fruit treatment involves removing the main stem and associated spikelets.


The steaming of palm fruits aids in the separation of resin, gum, and kernel by preventing oxidation and hydrolysis.


Mechanically mixing and pounding sterilized fruits, coupled with additional heat, facilitates the release of palm oil.


Hydraulic pressure extraction is utilized to extract oil from processed fruit.

Oil Clarification

Hot water is introduced to the oil for contaminant removal, followed by filtration.


Solvent extraction using methanol eliminates free fatty acids crucial for preventing oil oxidation.


Hydrolyzing triglycerides yields glycerol and fatty acids, requiring further refinement for refined glycerine.

Glycerin Pretreatment

Distillation is one method employed to purify the mixture of glycerine and fatty acids.


Complete purification of glycerine involves the evaporation of residual methanol from the deacidification process.

Pharmaceuticals Industry

Glycerine is a vital raw material in the pharmaceutical sector, contributing to medications, suppositories, cough treatments, and anesthetics.

Cosmetic Industry

Glycerine's moisture-retaining properties enhance the shelf life of cosmetic products while preserving their softness and creaminess.

Food Industry

Utilized as a hydration aid in sports and as a sweetener in various food items.

Industrial Applications

Ongoing research explores glycerine as a gasoline additive to reduce harmful emissions. Its lubricating qualities dissipate heat, reduce friction, enhance mechanical efficiency, and protect against overheating. Glycerine's economic viability makes it valuable as a chemical intermediate and in diverse industrial applications.
