  Oleochemical - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Oleochemicals are chemicals derived from biological oils or fats.
They are analogous to petrochemicals which are chemicals derived from petroleum.
The hydrolysis or alcoholysis of oils or fats form the basis of the oleochemical industry and use the same oleochemical general formula:

 Natural and Synthetic Surfactants
Oleochemical surfactants, also referred to as ”natural,” are derived from plant oils such as palm, palm kernel or coconut oil, or from animal fats such as tallow, lard or fish oil.
Petrochemical and oleochemical surfactants both come from natural sources, since crude oil is extracted from the earth and originates from plants.
To illustrate this point, four surfactants (two oleochemical and two petrochemical) with similar chemical structure (same chain lengh; all essentially linear alcohol sources) were tested side by side in the laboratory using the same method and the same bacterial source.

 OLEOCHEMICAL INDUSTRY
Production of oleochemicals in the Philippines started in 1967 when a company, Cocochemical Plant, Inc. started producing methyl esters, fatty alcohols and butyl cocophtalate using a technology provided for by Kao Corporation of Japan.
It is interesting to note, moreover, that the Philippines has a legislation requiring the use of up to 60% of detergent raw materials as surfactants derived from coconut fatty alcohols.
However, with the growing concern for environmental and consumer protection, further development of downstream processing of basic oleochemicals have been encouraged especially on various raw materials used in large scale applications, as in the case of detergents and related cleaning products.

 CLER Fact Sheet OLEOCHEMICAL AND PETROCHEMICAL SURFACTANTS
Oleochemical feedstocks -- like palm oil and tallow -- are not typically used as fuels and are not counted in the material resource value.
Altho ugh all major surfactants, both oleochemical and petrochemical, biodegrade rapidly in aerobic environments, risk-assessment data, based on environmental monitoring, is generally available only for LAS.
While oleochemical feedstocks have been labeled "renewable," the source of their future expansion is likely to be the replacement of tropical rain forests by palm plantations.

 Nutmeg and derivatives - 7. The present market status of the vegetable fats and oleochemical industries
In general, there are two types of feedstock (raw materials) for the oleochemical industries: (1) when the feedstock raw material used is a natural fat then the oleochemical produced is known as "natural" oleochemical and (2) when the raw material is from petroleum then the oleochemical produced is known as "synthetic" oleochemical or petrochemical.
Kaufman (Vice-president for Oleochemicals for Henkel's Emery Group in Ohio) in a keynote address to the world conference on oleochemicals in 1990 said that the world production of fats and oils increased between 1960 and 1990 from 32.1 million metric tons to 80.6 million metric tons.
In 1990, the world demand for oleochemicals was about 4.4 million metric tons with 50% of this representing market for fatty acids and 20% for fatty alcohols.

 C&EN: Latest News - An Unlikely Impact
OLEOCHEMICAL EXECUTIVES like Howard M. Findley, sales manager for Peter Cremer North America, have watched helplessly as the price of glycerin has dropped by almost half over the past few years to less than 50 cents per lb today.
Findley’s company, the U.S. arm of Cremer Gruppe, a German food ingredients and oleochemical firm, began marketing biodiesel in 2002 through a toll manufacturing agreement with Corsicana Technologies, a small chemical maker that operates a former PandG facility in Corsicana, Texas.
Gene Gebolys, World Energy’s founder and president, acknowledges the tension between the oleochemical and biodiesel industries, but he says the momentum is behind biodiesel.

Interpretive Summary: In the interest of making bio-based compounds for use as additives in commercial products such as lubricants and fuel additives, the physical and fuel properties of several fatty compounds (materials derived from vegetable oil feedstocks) containing a carbonate group were investigated.
Technical Abstract: Carbonates are a class of compounds that have recently found increasing interest in commercial applications due to their physical properties and relatively straightforward synthesis.
In this work, physical and fuel properties of five straight-chain C17-39 and three branched C17-33 oleochemical carbonates were investigated.

The country's resources based and export oriented oleochemical industry has hardly been affected by the crisis that has badly battered other industries in the country.
In 1997-2001 period, the country's production of oleochemicals has continued to rise as demand has also continued to increase abroad.
In the past five years, production has risen by 8% annually on the average - from 526,259 tons in 1997 to 712,012 tons in 2001.

PT Musim Mas, an integrated palm oil producer, has embarked on an expansion of its oleochemical plant near the North Sumatra port of Belawan that will increase its annual production capacity to 357,000 metric tons of fatty alcohol, medium-chain triglycerides, oleic acid, glycerine, fatty acids and high-quality soap.
The expansion, which will make the Musim Mas oleochemical plant the second largest in the world after a plant in Malaysia owned by Sime Darby, is scheduled to be commissioned in 2007, according to Musim Mas Managing Director Surja.
Musim Mas, one of the largest palm oil exporters in Indonesia, is the only firm in the country that has won for five successive years the Primanyarta award for distinguished export performance and the only winner so far of the Primanyarta gold award given by the government, Surja said.
