There are two main processes to obtain soap: one is using oils and fats as raw materials and the other utilizes fatty acids. The selection of the most suitable solution depends on many technical and economic factors and should be done together with Binacchi.

The most used oils and fats to produce soap are animal fats (typically beef tallow) and/or vegetable oils (palm oil, palm stearin, palm kernel oil, coconut oil) and caustic soda NaOH.
To produce soap with normal trading standards, oils and fats have to be bleached or RBD (Refined,Bleached, Deodorized).
The saponification reaction produces also glycerine as by-product.

Saponification Plant transforms Oils / Fats with Caustic soda into Soap and Glycerine. The soap produced is liquid, hot and with a high level of moisture: it must be therefore dried in the next Soap Dryer that produces noodles of white soap.

The glycerine produced by the saponification is diluted and contains various impurities (spent lyes). Spent lyes will be refined, concentrated and distilled in three subsequent glycerine plants (Purification, Concentration, Distillation) to obtain pharmaceutical/food grade glycerine.

The alternative route to soap involves a simple neutralization of fatty acids. However the main raw materials are again oils and fats that are first transformed into fatty acids and glycerine by a Splitting Plant. Fatty acids are then distilled to obtain the necessary purity.

In this case the Saponification Plant is very simple but glycerine is more diluted (sweet waters). Sweet waters will be processed in three subsequent glycerine plants (purification, concentration, distillation).

Also in this case the soap produced is liquid and with high moisture therefore a Soap Dryer is necessary.
