Ambrogio Pagani has a long tradition in the processing of oils and fats. The company started its activities in 1948 with the production of gelatin and bone glu, then, in the 70s, it specialized towards the production of fatty acids, and today it’s a chemical industry that produces stearic acid and glycerine, from both animal fats and vegetable oils.
In 1990, Ambrogio Pagani S.p.A. set up a joint venture with Faci S.p.A. of Genova and Reagens S.p.A. of Bologna.
The company has always been careful in promoting sustainable development in the protection of people and the environment. The raw materials, renewable and biodegradable, are fats of animal origin, obtained from the rendering of slaughterhouse waste, and vegetable oils (not intended for human consumption), both of Italian and European production, such as soybean or sunflower oil, both from the Far East like palm oil.
The manufacturing processes make it possible to enhance these raw materials by transforming them into biodegradable chemicals, not classified as dangerous for the environment or human health and exempted from registration. The products are used in several sectors: from the plastics industry to that of lubricants, from the paper industry to that of paints, detergents and animal feed.
