Crude Fatty Acid
Fintoil’s products and their end-uses
Crude Tall Oil comes from the Finnish evergreen and is a by-product of the kraft pulping process. It is a natural and sustainable raw material used in the production of numerous everyday products.
Tall oil is a versatile mixture of compounds that can be refined into different fractions. All usable, no waste. Judging by volume the main end-products of tall oil distillation are fatty acids and rosin, but turpentine and pine pitch are important as well.
Further processing of Fintoil’s products creates raw materials for various products and end-uses, such as biofuels, adhesives and binders, car tires, inks, and even health and wellness products, and fragrances.
