Brief Description

Description :

The technology includes process of isolation of triacontanol from rice bran wax that involves aqueous saponification of defatted rice bran wax followed by extraction of fatty alcohol mixture from the saponified mass using an appropriate organic solvent. The process does not generate any effluents, and technically and economically feasible as it is being produced by industry.
