This is a technology that I've personally followed for a long time. It uses a special catalyst to rearrange the methyl esters of unsaturated fatty acids to form new oleochemicals, one of which, an 18-carbon dicarboxylic acid (actually the diester) may compete with dimer acid, a product of the pine chemicals industry. This is the second plant, so the process must be working well.
