Oils & Fats
Oils and fats include all triglycerides of plant and animal origin as well as the derivatives produced from these (downstream products). Most oil manufacturers extend their provision to free fatty acids, fatty alcohols, fatty acid esters, mono- and diglycerides etc. It is UIC‘s goal to assist and support you optimizing the value creation right at the source as most of these products can easily be produced in better qualities through Thin Film Evaporation or Short Path Distillation.
Even other natural product extracts (e.g. essential oils and oleoresins) can often be improved in colour and purity through distillation.
The processed source materials:
The processed source materials are palm oil, free fatty acids, tall oil sterols, natural wax, terpenoide, tar.
