According to Tata Strategic Management Group, increasing demand for biodegradable and sustainable products, coupled with recent changes in regulations, are increasing the importance of oleochemicals in various segments of the industry, notably polymers, lubricants and biosurfactants. Asia continues to drive demand in Oleochemicals, with Indonesia, Malaysia, China and India leading the trend.


Indonesia's Ministry of Industry targets Indonesia to be the world's largest manufacturer of oleochemicals by 2020! As the largest producer of crude palm oil (CPO) in the world, Indonesia is likely to outnumber the world's industrial base oleochemicals in Malaysia, determined to further develop the processing industry to value add to the palm industry.


With the recent biodiesel mandate in Indonesia, opportunities are aplenty for the biodiesel producers and suppliers. However, how will it impact the price of palm oil moving forward?


With more companies joining the RSPO and moving towards sustainability and traceability, it is no longer a choice but a MUST to stay ahead of the game! What is the cost impact of RSPO certified products? What are the challenges of supplying RSPO certified oleochem and derivatives?

Unilever Oleochemical Indonesia’s new palm oil processing plant to promote palm oil transparency

Posted on : 04 Aug, 2014


Unilever Oleochemical Indonesia, a sister company of Unilever Indonesia (one of the largest producers of consumer goods in the country), is in the process of completing its eco-friendly palm oil processing plant on the North Sumatran coast of Indonesia. The plant is expected to commence operations by 2015.

The 1.5 trillion rupiah ($126 million) project was secured by Unilever in mid-2013.

The plant will produce chemicals for soap and detergent manufacturers by processing palm oil. The chemicals are said to be used by factories in Indonesia apart from Unilever's own affiliates in overseas markets.

It is located in the Sei Mangkei SEZ. The Indonesian government has extended support for Unilever's project. In fact, Unilever Oleochemical has been awarded a 5-year tax holiday along with a 2-year extension.

Purchasing palm oil from plantations grown on clear-cut tropical forest land has often come under criticism because it causes global warming. With this new plant, Unilever expects to usher in more transparency into Indonesia's palm oil supply chain, which has been critiqued in the past by environmental groups like Greenpeace.

In its commitment towards sustainable palm oil, Unilever has already announced that it plans to purchase its palm oil from certified producers by 2020.

At CMT's 2nd Oleochemicals Outlook, more insights on oleochemicals industry will be shared with a session on 'TRANSFORMING THE PALM OIL INDUSTRY' by Mr. Biswaranjan Sen, VP, Chemicals Procurement & Supply Procurement, Unilever.

Cargill acquires new oleochemicals plant in Turkey, its third outside the US and Russia

Posted on : 09 Jun, 2014


Cargill, the US-based MNC, has recently announced that it has acquired Turkey based Alemdar Kimya - a vegetable oil-based industrial commodities producer.


Cargill is reported to have spent USD 50 million on the Turkish acquisition that covers all shares, name rights, facilities and a land plot adjacent to 95-year old Alemdar Kimya's production site in Gebze, Kocaeli.


The Turkish plant becomes Cargill's third oleochemicals plant outside the US and Russia.


The plant is expected to produce various industrial raw materials for sectors such as textiles, printing, machinery, and others.


Cargill has been making the most of Turkey's growing economy and the country has served as the company's management center for Middle Eastern and North African operations since 2008.


The new investment is expected to make Turkey a regional development and supply base for vegetable oil-based industrial products, helping Cargill to use locally procured raw materials for production. The investment is also said to reduce import of various industrial products and help reduce Turkey's current account deficit by USD 50 million a year.

Singapore’s Wilmar International in preliminary talks to acquire Sime Darby’s oleochemicals division – Emery

Posted on : 23 Apr, 2014


A recent report in The Edge Review's Market Intelligence, revealed that Wilmar International Ltd., one of Asia's leading agribusiness groups, has shown interest in acquiring Malaysia based Sime Darby's oleochemicals division.


In fact the report suggests that the preliminary negotiations have already begun.


Wilmar has indicated that it's keen on acquiring Emery Olechemicals - a leader in natural-based chemicals - where Sime Darby holds 50 per cent stakes.


However, details on pricing and final deal is yet to be finalized.


Moreover, before the acquisition takes place, approval from Thailand based energy group - PTT Global Chemical has to be sought as PTT holds the remaining 50 per cent in Emery.


Meanwhile, bankers claim that Thailand's largest petrochemical maker - PTT Global, has pre-emption rights in the event of any planned divestment by Sime Darby. Plus, the Thai petrochemical honcho has already shown keen interest in taking full control of Emery in the past.


(Note: This story first appeared in The Edge Review's Market Intelligence Report section in February 2014).


Stay tuned on the latest developments in the oleochemicals industry at CMT's 2nd Oleochemicals Outlook conference in Jakarta on 26-27 August 2014. Visit www.cmtevents.com for more information.
