Raw glycerol

Depending on raw material and production process the qualities of glycerol can vary greatly. We offer Glycerol as a byproduct of the Biodiesel production based on fatty acid methyl ester out of vegetable oils.

Raw Glycerol is used in different areas, for example in the compound feed industry as:

▪ energy feed
▪ increases animal appetite
▪ dust binder
▪ pelletizing additive
▪ Ketose prophylaxis
▪ better the visual look of feedstuffs.

Glycerol is a viscous, hygroscopic and scentless liquid. The coloring depends on the raw materials used in the production process.

For example: raw glycerol base don rape oil is brighter than raw glycerol base don soya oil. In the following these ingredients are – due to their usage – mainly seen as quality determing:

The qualities of raw glycerol can vary within the following benchmarks:


Glycerol ca. 80 to 86%
Water < 15%
Methanol < 0,2%
pH 4-6


Raw glycerol is typically traded as follows:

raw glycerol:

Glycerol content min. 80 %, water content max. 14 %, methanol content < 0,2%, sound quality, usual in trade, otherwise tel quel.
