Distillate waste/residue

Has anyone found or know any commercial applications for distillate residue? We have approximately 68 kg and would be interested to see if there is a secondary market for the waste.

Thanks

Construction companies like kraton use these chemical feedstocks from plant waste. Paper companies like Georgia Pacific feed all of their terpenes and pitch to secondary companies that make polyamides, fuel additives, paints, coatings, and adhesives.

They test an array of physical properties of each waste like tensile, sheer, UV resistance, ect. strength, then hand it off to people with ideas for the product like turning asphalt or sealing it (as a totally arbitrary example, I don’t suggest you patch your roads with your res).

Forgot to finish my thought - it’s hard to compete with a waste stream like Georgia Pacific or dundermifflen. Think building sized rolled films producing drums of waste every half hour. I don’t know about selling it for anything crazy but there are theoretic uses.

Thanks for the info. At this point I would not care giving it away knowing it wouldn’t be sitting in a landfill, but could be researched for other emerging market products.

@Bridge was soliciting the stuff at one point…

Don’t have 500 kilos but have approximately 50 kilos with more processing starting next week to yield some more. Not sure if we could get to your 500 Kilos number. We also do not have a COA but we could probably get one for you if you needed it.
