Ecological life cycle optimization of vegetable oils

Ecological life cycle optimization of vegetable oils

Fett Wissenschaft Technologie 96(7): 241-246

Vegetable oils are of rising importance as raw materials for the chemical industry, especially because of advantages in the ecological point of view. But there are many possibilities for a further increase of the ecological qualities of vegetable oils compared to petrochemicals. Such improvement is attainable in the following fields: regionalization of cultivation, promotion of certified organic farming, technical use of more than one part of a plant, reserve in modification of the oils to save energy and to maintain an easy return into the biological cycles. Ecological optimization in these fields will further increase the public acceptance of vegetable oils as raw materials for chemical-technical products and in this way develop the given advantages in the marketplace.
