We pride ourselves in producing world class natural pine turpentine and natural pine rosin in its purest form, with zero additives.
We are the only company in Australia that is currently extracting turpentine out of pine trees and manufacturing natural pine turpentine.
Cellulosic sugars are a major feedstock for the multi billion dollar bio based chemicals, bioplastics and biofuels markets.
Crude Wood or Exudates is collected from incisions (tappers) made in the tree trunk which is then distilled into terpenes and rosin (gum rosin & terpenes). This process is seasonal and highly labour intensive. This process if the primary production process used in China and ROW.
Pine chemicals are extracted using petroleum-based solvents such as hexane and then distilled to separate terpenes and rosin (wood rosin & terpenes)
A byproduct of the pulp making process, is fractionated to produce rosin and terpenes (tall oil rosin & terpenes) whilst CTO is renewable it is an environmentally unfriendly process as it creates serious waste streams with potentially harmful impacts.
