In LMC’s Glycerine Report, we consolidate our expertise in feedstocks, oleochemicals and biodiesel, as well as glycerine’s fragmented end-uses, to ask if glycerine's current high prices will stay?

As bio-based chemicals and fuels industries look to move away from first generation, food-based raw materials, this new report evaluates the prospects for second generation feedstocks over the next decade. Will there be sufficient, reliable supply at competitive prices?
