Bulk Vegetable Glycerin
An interesting thing about glycerin is it’s history with biodiesel production. Since glycerin is a waste byproduct of biodiesel production, the market has recently been depressed. In fact, there is only one producer left in the USA for high quality glycerin production. Sensitive pharmaceuticals are the only current market for this product.
Some other industries that use glycerin are the food industry, surface science, antifreeze, personal care and even Fuel. That’s right, glycerin may not only be a byproduct of biodiesel production, but according to one Kent company, it may be an alternative to biodiesel. We’ll just have to see where that goes.
