With increasing production of biodiesel, a glut of glycerin (C3H8O3) is expected in the world market. The market will likely to be saturated because of limited utilization of glycerin in the world. Therefore, it is essential to find other useful applications for glycerin. One possibility is utilization of glycerin as a source of producing chemicals and energy. The paper discusses the possible useful chemicals derived from glycerin through sub- and supercritical water reaction.
