The limited availability of non-renewable and growing consumer demand has turned the sufficiency of natural resources and the state of the environment, into a globally important question. Forchem tall oil products have a low carbon footprint, generating minimal volumes of greenhouse gases compared to alternative materials.
Our raw material, crude tall oil (CTO), is an industrial byproduct derived from the kraft pulping process. There is no additional use of natural resources. Forchem's modern bio refinery is powered by 99 % bioenergy.

Fortop600 is a liquid biofuel, which replaces heavy fuel oil (HFO) in customer applications. Carbon footprint for production of Fortop600 is 1,9 gCO2eq./MJ*, whereas production of HFO causes six times higher emissions. Combustion of Fortop600 is carbon-free, whereas combustion of HFO causes emissions of 90 gCO2eq./MJ**. This makes greenhouse emissions of HFO as high as 35-fold compared to emissions of Forchem Fortop600.
