Sludges are solid residues generated during the clarification process of vegetable oils. These residues consist of impurity particles, such as seed residues, husks, or other unwanted materials, which are separated from the oil during clarification. Sludges are a byproduct of the oleochemical industry and must be properly managed to minimize their environmental impact.

Uses and Applications

Sludges are mainly used as raw material for the production of biodiesel or other oleochemical products. They can also be used as raw material in the production of animal feed, although their use for food purposes is usually limited due to their impurity content and subsequent processing.
