By being able to use as much of our raw materials as possible, adapt and invest in new technologies and markets, we have created a range of products that serves industries, including agriculture, pharmaceutical and healthcare, and much more.
Furfural & derivatives
In our South African operations we produce a range of furfural and derivatives.
Furfural is used mainly within furfuryl alcohol and in lube oil refineries as a solvent when purifying base oils, as well as in specialist applications such as the manufacturing of grinding wheels, friction pellets for brake pads and to a lesser extent as a flavour ingredient.
Furfuryl alcohol is used in areas such as wood treatment to produce acid-resistant coatings and certain pharmaceuticals, as well as a flavour ingredient. More information on the range of these products and specifications, can be found here.
