AF-14258 - Vegetable oil-based waxes in industrial applications (BO-44-002-011, BO-21.04-002-001)

  • Franciolus, David (Project Leader)

Project: EZproject

Project Details


The objective of the project is to significantly extend the use of vegetable-based waxes for industrial uses, by

modification of the HVOs to overcome current technical shortcomings.

The project aims to deliver a deeper understanding of the interrelation between the chemistry, structure and

technical properties of HVOs, and how to modify them in an effective way. If successful, its commercial scaleup

is feasible since the process builds upon existing food refinery infrastructure.
