Technical Document

Brief Overview

Refined glycerine, commonly known as glycerol or glycerin, is a basic sugar alcohol possessing three hydroxyl groups, contributing to its hygroscopic and water-soluble properties. Exhibiting a colorless, odorless, crystal-clear appearance with high boiling point and viscosity, this liquid signifies its innate sweetness and minimal toxicity. Its boiling point is 290°C, while its normal melting point is 17.8°C. The density of refined glycerine is 1.26 g/cm³. Originating from petrochemical feedstock, it finds applications across various sectors, including biodiesel production, food, medicine, cosmetics, and personal care items.

Manufacturing Process


Removing the primary stem and any related spikelets is the first step in treating palm fruit.


By inhibiting oxidation and hydrolysis, steaming palm fruits helps separate the resin, gum, and kernel.


Sterilized fruits are mechanically mixed and pounded, and then more heat is used to encourage the release of palm oil.


To extract oil from processed fruit, hydraulic pressure extraction is used.

Oil Clarification

The oil is heated to remove impurities, and then it is filtered.


Free fatty acids, which are essential for avoiding oil oxidation, are eliminated using solvent extraction with methanol.


Triglycerides are hydrolyzed to produce glycerol and fatty acids; refined glycerine is obtained by further refining the resulting product.

Glycerin Pretreatment

One technique used to cleanse the glycerine and fatty acid combination is distillation.


Complete purification of glycerine involves the evaporation of residual methanol from the deacidification process.

Pharmaceuticals Industry

Used to make suppositories, cough remedies, anesthetics, and pharmaceuticals, glycerine is an essential raw ingredient in the pharmaceutical industry.

Cosmetic Industry

The moisture-retaining qualities of glycerine extend the shelf life of cosmetics while maintaining their smoothness and creamy texture.

Food Industry

Used as a sweetener in a variety of foods and as a hydration aid in sports.

Industrial Applications

Research on glycerine as an additive for gasoline to lower hazardous emissions is still ongoing. Its lubricating properties prevent overheating, distribute heat, lower friction, and improve mechanical efficiency. Glycerine is useful as a chemical intermediary and in a variety of industrial applications due to its economic viability.
