Growing Tartaric Acid Market Demand


Tartaric acid exists naturally in plants, particularly grapes, bananas, and tamarinds. Naturally occurring tartaric acid is chiral, meaning it has molecules that are not superimposable on their mirror images. It is a useful raw material in organic chemistry for the synthesis of other chiral molecules. The naturally occurring form of the acid is L-(+)-tartaric acid

Diversion of Crude Tall Oil (CTO) as a biofuel feedstock


Biofuel production has long been shrouded with controversy, especially over the appropriateness of its feedstock. One ongoing debate is the usage of edible crops as feedstock that has resulted in unintended consequences such as a rise in food prices. One solution proposed by many is the use of wood-based biomass as biofuel feedstock. However, this

The first surfactant introduced for an environmental cause – LABSA / LAS


Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonic Acid (LABSA), is the world’s most widely used synthetic detergent surfactant. Its salt, Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonates (LAS) serves the same purpose. They were developed as a replacement for the previously widely used detergent surfactant, the highly branched Alkylbenzene Sulfonates. LABSA became the first surfactant that was introduced to improve the environment problems
