Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • The bio-refining integration study considered the integration of chemical production with biodeisel production on the basis of upgrading the glycerol co-product to either
    epichloroydrin or 1,3-propanediol.
  • Solvay is the world's 4th largest producer of epichlorohydrin. They have developed their epicerol process to convert glycerol to epichlorohydrin.
  • With a market size of 1.3 million tonnes, epichlorohydrin is predominately used in the
    production of epoxy resins and other resins and polymers.
  • The key materials to produce liquid epoxy resin are ECH & bisphenol A. Bisphenol A is exclusively manufactured from petrochemical resources, where epichlorhydrin can be produced from bio-based glycerol.
  • The increasing availability of bio-based glycerol from biodiesel production makes it possible to produce bio-based epichlorohydrin.
  • There are new developments using vegetable oils as building blocks for the chemical industry, for instance using the glycerol that is a by-product of biodiesel production as a raw material for the production of epichlorohydrin.
  • Epichlorohydrin-basic chemical produced by using a renewable resource.
  • Building block of Epichlorohydrin.
  • Bio-based Chemicals.


  • Epichlorohydrin Production from crude glycerol.
  • Integrated Bio-diesel and Epichlorohydrin production.
