Oleon is the leading producer of oleochemicals in Europe. At Oleon we believe in the use of natural renewable raw materials. We are specialized in converting natural fats and oils into a wide range of oleochemical products, such as fatty acids, glycerine, esters, dimers, technical oils, specialty oleochemicals and biodiesel. Our products, made from renewable raw materials, combine high performance with ready biodegradability.
The head office of Oleon is located in Ertvelde near Ghent (Belgium). We have two production sites in Belgium (Ertvelde and Oelegem), one in Norway (Sandefjord), one in Germany (Emmerich), one in Compiègne (France) and one in Port Klang (Malaysia). Because of the favorable location of our plants, various transportation possibilities across land and sea are at our disposal: Oleon buys raw materials from all over the world and its end products are exported to more than 100 countries.
The chemistry of fats and oils and their derivatives is our key technology. Today we manufacture our high quality products in modern facilities with state of the art technology. Thanks to well-contemplated investments, mainly based on own developed technology, our plants are the most recent and the most efficient. Ambitious investment programs are running in each of our factories which put us at the top of the oleochemical scene.
