Ropella Industry Expertise

In contrast to petrochemicals, derived from petroleum, oleochemicals are those chemicals which are derived from plant and animal fats. With feedstocks that come from all-natural renewable resources, oleochemicals have become a superstar with consumers who want the products they purchase to be organic, sustainable, and environmentally friendly.

The oleochemical industry began its rise to prominence in the late 1970s, as the price of crude oil rose. That doesn’t mean that this industry is still in its infancy, though: the history of oleochemicals and soap traces back 5000 years, and soaps and detergents continue to be the largest use of these chemicals today. The fastest growing applications include eco-friendly, polyols, biodiesels, plasticizers and biolubricants.
