Biodiesel production generates large amounts of glycerol as a byproduct with a purity of about 80%. This is done by transesterification of vegetable oils with methanol. A fat molecule (triacylglycerol) is reacted with tree methanol molecules to glycerol and three fatty acid methyl esters (FAME). This glycerine is used for different applications.

By further processing of the crude glycerol the glycerine achieves pharmaceutical grade with a purity of about 99%, which is used in the food and in the pharmaceutical industry for many different applications.
