LONDON (ICIS)--Spot European crude glycerine values have decreased this week, despite continuing tight conditions, sources said late on Wednesday.
Crude glycerine values are assessed lower by €20/tonne at €330-430/tonne ($440-573/tonne) FD (free delivered) NWE (northwest Europe).
Sources have said that kosher genetically modified (GMO) crude glycerine is available at prices of €330/tonne FD NWE, but that very tight supply of kosher non-GMO crude glycerine means its values are at €430/tonne FD NWE.
“I’m still offering crude glycerine at €450/tonne FD NWE – buyers can either pay it or leave it,” one producer said.
“€450/tonne FD NWE for non-GMO kosher crude glycerine is too high – the market may be tight but I am certainly not seeing that level. Levels are around €430/tonne FD NWE maximum,” another producer said.
“Prices are going down as supply is gradually balancing out,” a distributor said.
