Glycerin, a trihydric alcohol, had once enjoyed a good market value but, is now faced with global oversupply and this makes the market volatile. It is a byproduct of biodiesel production thought as an added value to biodiesel operations. It is now faced with an unpredictable market and probably oversupply as an outcome of increased biodiesel production. There are two types of glycerin market; the refined glycerin with its solid price and crude glycerin which is volatile. There are new applications for glycerin being developed or being implemented and it will be a source of strength to the market. This thesis takes an in-depth review of glycerol from its sources to refining and the market.
