Hydrogenation in the Oil and Fats Industries

Hydrogenation is a process that uses hydrogen gas to change a liquid vegetable oil into a hard spread / margarine. This process stabilises the oil and prevents spoilage from oxidation. Hydrogenation reactions are sensitive to a variety of factors that can negatively impact batch time, catalyst life, production rate and selectivity. In addition to being the world’s leading hydrogen supplier, Air Products can help optimise your hydrogenation reaction and reduce costs through selection of the best supply mode and evaluation and optimisation of reaction kinetics or thermodynamics.
