Pine Chemicals

Overview Industry Overview:

Long before being “green” was a marketable trend, the pine chemical industry worked at being eco-friendly and ensuring that arborous co-products of the papermaking process were utilized to their fullest potential. Their sustainability goes beyond using every part of the tree – pine chemical waste can also be burned to provide heat and steam at papermaking facilities, and pine chemical additives are used to boost automotive fuel efficiencies and decrease automotive fuel emissions.

Sawdust is one of the many natural, renewable raw materials derived from pine chemicals. Sawdust alone has a multitude of potential uses, from the creation of particle board to natural filtration systems to bedding for pets and livestock. Other uses for various pine chemicals include additives for paints and coatings, fragrances, adhesives, and surfactants.

App Common Applications:

  • Processes – batch, continuous
  • Resins Turpene – isoprene, oxidation, flocculants, etc.
  • Biofuels
  • Tall oil – resin, fatty acids, pitch, etc.
  • Black liquor skimming, etc.
  • Fractionation
