When it comes to beef fat, cashew oil, etc., we will only think of them as common fats and oils used in cooking. However, the oils and greases used for cooking have been processed through many procedures to achieve certain standards. So, what about oils and fats that have not gone through the refining process? For what purpose will they be used? This article will go deeper into the types of crude oils and greases being used for industrial purposes. First, we will learn about crude animal fat and its applications.


Animal fat/tallow

   Crude fat is fat obtained from extracting adipose tissue of animals, especially livestock animals such as goats, cows, pigs... Animal fats that have not gone through the refining process are called crude tallow or crude fat. 

  Because it has not been extensively processed, crude fat may contain impurities, strong odors, and other properties that are not suitable for culinary use. Instead, they are used as a lubricant for industrial machinery, helping to reduce friction, prevent wear, and help machines operate smoothly and quickly. 

   In addition, crude fat is also a new renewable source of raw materials to replace fossil raw materials. According to Discovery, Tyson Foods is conducting a test to convert low-quality, inedible fats and grease into a renewable diesel for use in vehicles. Toxic compounds of gasoline will not be found in this type of renewable diesel.


Plants oils

   Crude vegetable oil is oil extracted from the seeds, leaves, and fruits of plants. Unlike animal fats, unrefined vegetable oils are used in the production of cosmetics, soaps, detergents... 

   They are also used as an environmentally friendly biofuel. Biodiesel contains few toxic substances, reducing carbon dioxide emissions into the environment. Despite high production costs, biodiesel is still a potential alternative energy source in the future.




   Several studies have shown that biofuels have a positive impact on many aspects of life.

    - Environmental protection: using biofuel mixed with gasoline will contribute to improving environmental pollution by reducing CO, SO2, dust particles and CO2 contained in traditional fuels. In addition, the development of raw material areas for the production process also contributes to creating green vegetation to reduce the impact of storms, floods and erosion.

     - Ensuring energy security: Developing biofuels based on taking advantage of huge renewable raw materials helps countries be proactive and not dependent on fuel imports, especially with countries without oil and coal resources. At the same time, restrain the increase in oil prices and stabilize the world energy situation.

    - Economic development: using biofuels helps create more jobs for workers, especially in rural areas where input materials are grown.



   Although using animal fats and vegetable oils as biological raw materials can solve environmental and emission problems, it still has certain difficulties:

    - Low heat energy, high freezing point, so difficult to use in cold areas and in winter.

    - Supply is abundant but not large enough to meet demand.

    - Difficulties in production and distribution equipment.

    - The cost is high so support from the government is needed.
