Section 2: Special Focus:
Russia's Oleochemicals Potential and Prospect for Palm Oil
By: Mrs. Elena Khudoleeva

Mrs.Elena Khudoleeva, Deputy Director General for science and product quality control. 17 years of experience in SME NIIPAV. SME NIIPAV is one of the leading Russian surfactant manufacturer. For a long time she has been engaged in the development of surfactant production technologies. Participated in international conferences. She is the author of patents and publications on technologies for the production of surfactants based on vegetable raw material.
VIEW PROFILE
The oleochemical industry is an important part of Russian economy, which grew by 2% in 2018. According to forecasts of the Ministry of Economy Russia's GDP will increase to 3.6 % by 2024 .
This report observes the prospects for the growth of oleochemistry in Russia, estimates the volumes of consumption of palm oil as raw materials for production of surfactants, and shows advantages of palm oil over oils of Russian origin. To assess the development of oleochemical industry in Russia this report presents the leading Russian surfactant manufacturers and their production volumes. The main directions of the oleochemical industry and the main areas of application of the final products based on palm oil and its derivatives are also observed, the share of import and export of products is given.

Your analysis shows that large part of the raw materials used for the production of soap is animal fats. Where did Russia source so much of animal fats to support its soap production. As a technical person, can you explain the superiority of using animal fats against the normally used vegetable oils in soap production. On raw material prices, using animal fats already make the raw material less competitive. There again it is also not easy to source as globally there is not much of tallow to source. For your comments. Thank you
POINTERS SECRETARIAT:
Dear Shaheen. Annually In Russia about 100 thousand tons of animal fats are produced. 42 thousand tons is needed for the production of solid soap , so the animal fats of Russian origin is enough. The cost of this fat is lower than the cost of palm oil in twice. From the technical point of view, I could say that animal fats have an advantage compared to vegetable fats in the sense that they have higher saturation of alkyl chains, therefore the solidification temperature is higher, which is a good indicator for solid soaps.

Feedstock for household soap - soap stock as 39%, this refers to what kind of soap stocks? what about soap noodles importation? Is there any data?
Elena:
Dear Edmund. For the production of solid soap, soap stock is used. Soap stock is the waste after the production of vegetable oils such as sunflower seed oil, rapeseed oil and etc. This feedstock is rather cheap for the production. We are not sure if there is such an alternative abroad. Sorry to say I couldn't provide any data regarding soap noodles' import to Russia for the time being.

why the production of solid soap is expected to decrease for the upcoming years?
MOHD RAFIZAN BIN SAMIAN:
sorry I think you have answered this on the conclusion. thanks

On Slide 29 : is there any reason why palm oil import in 2019 will be lesser than 2018? Thanks
Elena:
Dear Hafiz, In connection with the advent of liquid detergents for body and washing in recent years, there has been a tendency to reduce the production and consumption of solid detergents. So, in 2019 we are facing some decrease in palm oil import.

1) On Surfactant (a) Main application under 3 different categories, human life, light industry and heavy industry (i) Human life - which sections (household chemicals, personal care, medicine, firefighting) are in main used. How does the % looks like? (ii) Light industry - which sections (household chemicals, personal care, medicine, firefighting) are in main used. How does the % looks like? (iii) heavy industry - which sections (household chemicals, personal care, medicine, firefighting) are in main used. How does the % looks like?
Elena:
Dear Anthony, In brief I could say that in Russia surfactants based on vegetable oils are mainly used (more than 60%) in household chemicals and personal care, solid soap excluded.

Your slide shows that rapeseed and sunflower oil plays a significant part as feedstocks in Russia’s oleochemical production. Usually oleochemical is palm based. Can you explain why it is use in a significant way despite soft oils having low stearic content needs hydrogenation and price is high.
Elena:
Dear Amy, Indeed nowadays in Russia for oleochemicals to produce reagents for oil and gas extraction we use non-hydrogenated rapeseed oil, sunflower seed oil or tallow oil. These feedstock is more expensive than palm oil, but it is domestic and doesn’t need going through customs clearance and paying additional customs tax. But we see strong prospects to use palm oil as feedstock for this industrial branch in the nearest future. Regarding cosmetics and household chemistry I should mention that for these divisions only coconut oil and palm kernel oil can be used which are only imported from abroad. Thanks for your attention to my report.
