Our September/October 2018 issue looks at the factors limiting the production of high oleic oils despite their nutritional and application advantages.

We focus on the EU rendering industry, which processes some 17M tonnes of animal material from meat production into fat and protein products that can be used in a range of applications including edible fats, oleochemicals, pet food, biodiesel, fish and animal feed.

Desmet Ballestra writes on new crystallisation and separation technologies being used to help meet demand for cocoa butter alternatives.

And we report on the latest projects, technology and process news and developments around the world. 

The September/October issue examines how keeping oil plantation roads in good order is essential in ensuring the best quality oil by getting palm fruits bunches quickly to mills for processing

On the topic of instrumentation, we summarise some of the developments relating to companies and testing around the world.

Our sustainability focus looks at how fossil jet fuel alternatives are no longer a concept but a pending commercial reality.

The September/October issue also includes OFI’s regular mix of news, event listings and statistics. 

A bonus distribution of this issue will be made at the:

  • National Renderers Association 85thAnnual Convention, California, USA, 22-26 October 2018
