CH Oleochemicals GmbH pursues its CO2 reduction strategy by making sustainable use of residual and waste materials generated within the pure plant-based loop and by creating energy products that deliver potential CO2 savings of over 90%. Biofuels and by-products play an especially important role in the implementation of this strategic alignment.
Virtually all industrial applications initiate substitution processes that move away from oil-based chemicals to take advantage of oleochemical materials that are entirely plant-based and can be grown in a sustainable manner.
The aim of these processes is to minimise the emission of greenhouse gases and thus create a better quality of life for future generations.
CH Oleochemicals GmbH monitors such procedures on an ongoing basis. Our mission and our activities are directed towards playing an active part in the CO2 reduction strategy.

The so-called “Federal Government Decarbonisation Strategy” entered into force in 2015. The oil industry is now only permitted to use biofuel additives which generate the highest effect in terms of minimising greenhouse gases.
This circumstance has brought about a long-term change in the whole of the biofuels market. Since 2015, there has been an increasing demand for biofuels which are based on residual and waste materials and exhibit a greenhouse gas reduction rate of at least 90%.
CH Oleochemicals supplies the raw materials used in such biofuels in a CO2-neutral way and is thus able to offer significant added value across the whole of the delivery chain.
