Glycerin Pricing Steady to Start Week

Glycerin Pricing Steady to Start Week

Crude glycerin values were holding steady to begin the holiday-shortened trading week. Brokers and producers quoted crude values in the 9 to 11 cents per pound range for the most part, although several traders said the market remains very quiet.

One producer selling primarily into the deicer/coal freeze sector, says demand is very strong. Frigid temperatures across the Great Plains, Midwest, and stretching to the East Coast have added demand.

Other traders are keeping their eyes on China and the Middle East. In one trader’s opinion, “The longer China takes to turn around their economy, the more glycerin originally destined for China will start arriving in the US or Mexico, adding imports to a currently full market.”
