Oleochemicals (2024 Program)​

This techno-economic report offers a review of chemistry, properties, feedstock choices, business development considerations, technology, and development trends of oleochemicals, including fatty acid, glycerine, and methyl ester. The report provides process economics for fatty acid and methyl ester (and glycerine as byproduct) for several different global locations (United States, Western Europe, Malaysia and China) under a consistent first quarter 2024 price scenario. Multiple feedstocks that are common to these locations are evaluated, such as soybean oil, rapeseed oil, crude palm oil and tallow. The report also provides a carbon intensity analysis, and a historical cost analysis.
