Palm Fatty Acid Distillate (PFAD) is a bulky by-product in the palm oil refinery. Large quantities are available for the production of cheap soaps, as precursor in animal feed and raw material for oleochemistry. Since 2009 some basic processes exist where PFAD is used for producing biodiesel. Accordingly, the price of PFAD raised but, however, it is still cheaper than palm oil, the cheapest vegetable oil. As PFAD is a product based on renewable raw materials, its use is in accordance with the “High-Tech Strategy 2020” of the German government.
