Many fish oils are significantly loaded with what are known as POPs (Persistent Organic Pollutants). This includes derivatives from the class of dioxins, furans, polychlorinated or polybrominated biphenyls (PBB, PCB), diphenyl ethers etc. The partly highly toxic chemical components can be extensively removed from the fish oil using Short Path Distillation
A further important application is the fractionating distillation of ethyl ester to concentrate the physiologically valuable Ω-3 fatty acids. Concentrates are obtained here which are available as food supplements or even in pharmaceutical quality.
The processed source materials:
The processed source materials emitted are fish oil and fish oil ethyl esters.
