Potassium Methylate (KM32)

The ideal catalyst for flexibility in biodiesel production from alternative raw materials such as UCO and tallow.

Potassium Hydroxide (KOH)

Potassium hydroxide is used in the production of detergents, as a catalyst in biodiesel production and as an additive in the food industry.

Ethanol (EOH)

Ethanol is used as a solvent, disinfectant and as a biofuel (e.g., in bioethanol).

Acetic Acid 60% / 99,5%

Acetic acid is used in the production of acetic esters (acetates) and cosmetics and in the food and textile industries.

Methane Sulphonic Acid (MSA)

Lutropur® MSA 70 and 100 are the ideal acids for pre-esterification – and not just for biodiesels.

Monoethylene Glycol (MEG)

Monoethylene glycol is the simplest divalent alcohol with the chemical designation ethane-1,2-diol.

Sodium Methylate (NM30)

A sodium methylate 30% solution in methanol is the most commonly used catalyst in the production of biodiesel from regular native oils.

Sodium Hydroxide

Sodium hydroxide is derived from sodium chloride and is among the most commonly used laboratory and industrial chemicals.
