Glycerol Production Cost Analysis 2020

Glycerol, better known as glycerine, is a simple polyol compound. It is a colourless, odourless, and viscous liquid that tastes sweet and is non-toxic in nature. The glycerol backbone is found in lipids known as glycerides. Since it has antimicrobial and antiviral properties it is used in FDA approved wound and burn treatments. It can also be taken as an effective marker to detect liver diseases. It is extensively used as a sweetener in the food industry as well as a humectant in pharmaceutical formulations. 

Glycerol is soluble with water and is hygroscopic in nature. It is usually obtained from plant and animal sources where it occurs in triglycerides, esters of glycerol with long-chain carboxylic acids. Glycerol from triglycerides is manufactured on a large scale where it is purified. 

Some glycerol is also burned for energy. Glycerol is a precursor for the synthesis of triacylglycerols and of phospholipids inside the liver and adipose tissue. Glycerol, along with the other fatty acids, are released into the bloodstream whenever the body uses stored fat as a source of energy. It is mainly metabolized in the liver. Glycerol injections are used as a simple test for liver damage, as its rate of absorption by the liver is considered for the precise measure of liver health.
