Glycerin

Pharma grade glycerin and Ultra high pure glycerin

Glycerin is a valuable by-product from the fatty acid and biodiesel value chains. Sulzer has developed a technology based on its proprietary distillation technology to refine glycerin to pharmaceutical grade glycerin and up to ultra high pure glycerin grades. Pharmaceutical glycerin is widely used in medical, pharmaceutical and personal care products, whereas ultra high pure glycerin can be used as food/feed additives and for various intermediates such as propylene glycol, acrolein and epichlorohydrin.
