Production and consumption of palm oil and its products are discussed as they relate to industrial products. The large volumes of palm oil being produced and projected for future production should increase the use of its byproducts in oleochemicals. Tallow is the most competitive fat to palm oil in these applications, but its market share (at least in Japan) seems to be declining. An enzymatic process for hydrolyzing fats and oils by a solid phase process is described.
