Castor oil is used as a highly renewable commerical oil resource for the chemcial industry for many centuries.
The oil produced from castor seeds is considered one of the global speciality chemical components due to it being the only commercial source of a hydroxylated fatty acid. As such, worldwide consumption has increased beyond 60% for the past 40 years.
Our oil refineries process 2,000 tons of castor seed every month.
Our castor oil unique properties are heavily used for various industrial applications.
With approximately 90% ricionleic, 4% linoleic, 3% oleic, 1 % stearic and >1% linolenic fatty acids, it has high shelf life compared to other oil types. Its functionalities are used in oil based paints, lubricants, inks and coatings.
Castor oil are safely used in pharmaceutical applications.
Castor oil methylesters are used as a bio diesel alternative blend with diesel fuel. Castor oil – bio diesel are optimized to improve diesel engine performance and emissions.
Sustainable fuel sources of energy are constantly explored by several countries to cut down the overall dependence on our primary fossil fuel source.
Bio diesel fuel is an excellent option to reduce harmful emissions.
Castor oil are actively used for developing lubricants, hydraulic oils and brake fluids. Castor oil properties enhance low pour point lubricant base stocks, which in turn helps to provide optimal lubrication for cold engines or cold weather.
A castor oil-based lubricant is an excellent smoke pollution reducer.
