Rapeseed Methyl Ester


Rapeseed Methyl Ester

Methyl ester of rapeseed (RME) is a methyl ester mixture made up of saturated and unsaturated C16 to C22 fatty acids. Technically, methyl esters of rapeseed are produced by chemical conversion of rapeseed oil using methanol.

RME is a clear, thin, combustible, non water-soluble liquid that gives off a faint smell. It is used as a substitute for diesel fuel (Biodiesel) and is also used as a solvent in the specialist industries (such as adhesives, foundries etc.). The principal constituents of methyl ester of rapeseed are oleic (55-65%), linoleic (18-25%), linolenic (5-11%) and palmitic acids (5-8%). Other fatty acids account for <1% of the product.
