Rethinking Oleochemistry

industrial ultrafiltration separated sediment

The current trajectory of our non-renewable chemical consumption is not sustainable. Oleochemicals, green chemistry, is the answer. But there is a need to diversify feedstocks to create sustainable growth of green chemicals.

Trucent's Next Start Up: Trucent Renewable Chemicals

Trucent Renewable Chemicals combines the bio-based raw materials from our agricultural customers, technical separation capability from our industrial experience, and leading-edge chemical research. We manufacture environmentally-friendly plant-based chemicals. Our products are used to formulate a wide range of products, including personal care products, animal feed, surfactants, paints, coolants, and lubricants.rnrnOur proprietary technology transforms undervalued and unique feedstocks into green chemical intermediaries. This technology was born out of 10 years within the dry mill ethanol and corn oil extraction space. The low capital process and the cost-competitive operational platform are adaptable to the emerging and dynamic nature of the vegetable oils and plant-based chemistry markets.rnu003ch2u003eProduct Lineu003c/h2u003ernu003culu003ern tu003cliu003eOleatesu003c/liu003ern tu003cliu003eFractionated Fatty Acidsu003c/liu003ern tu003cliu003eFatty Aminesu003c/liu003ern tu003cliu003eAlkanolamidesu003c/liu003ern tu003cliu003ePhytochemicalsu003c/liu003ern tu003cliu003eGlycerinu003c/liu003ernu003c/ulu003ernu0026nbsp;

Talk to an Oleochemical Expert

Trucent Renewable Chemicals uses advanced biocatalytic processes to produce sustainable oleochemicals, derivatives and fine chemicals. Derived from any of a wide range of different vegetable oils, our broad portfolio of oleic products are drop in replacements for oleochemicals traditionally made from palm, palm oils, and animal fats.


Our growing range of TruFA oleic and fatty acid products, all made from domestic seed oil feedstocks, include:

TruFA OA Series, oleic acid products suitable as direct replacements for palm oil and tallow-based oleics
TruFA FA Series, fatty acid products with high concentrations of linoleic and linolenic polyunsaturated fatty acids
TruFA FF Series, speciality blends to replace generic fatty acids such as Tall Oil Fatty Acids (TOFA)
TruTag Series, Highly-refined industrial and edible grade high oleic products


Our proprietary biocatalytic process splits and partitions plant-based oils into their intermediate chemistries. This low-energy, modular conversion process runs on any of 13 locally sourced, vegetable oil feedstocks for unprecedented market and product flexibility—including ability to produce custom blends. The resulting products score high markets on sustainability metrics related to energy cost reduction and greenhouse gas emissions.


Our solutions support green chemical initiatives by supplying our customers with consciously-sourced plant-based oleochemicals and sustainable production processes. Trucent’s biocatalytic conversion technology produces fewer greenhouse gasses and less waste than other methods and consumes less water and energy. Renewable feedstocks strengthen our position to reliably deliver chemical intermediates.
