JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (ICIS)--US-based oleochemicals producer P&G Chemicals will continue to invest in glycerine, an official said on Thursday.
“P&G is still innovating with glycerine and the company will continue to invest in this market,” said Tom Nelson, director of customer business development at P&G Chemicals.
He spoke at the ICIS World Surfactants Conference in Jersey City, New Jersey.
Nelson noted recent investments at its Kuantan, Malaysia, oleochemicals plant to enable production of food-grade glycerine because of increased demand for the product in China.
“Our glycerine is now compliant to the stringent regulations in China pertaining to usage of refined glycerine as a food additive,” he said.
