Oil phase is recovered during the concentration of molasses from orange and mandarin fruits.  It is composed of terpenes, with the main one being D-Limonene. D-Limonene is a biodegradable, naturally occurring solvent and is the principle component of citrus peel oil.

D-Limonene is the main terpene found in essential oils, however, unlike these, it is obtained through distillation.

It is a natural solvent whose particular characteristics lend themselves to a wide range of applications in different sectors, including the fertilizer and construction industries.

Regarding its sensory characteristics, D-Limonene has a characteristic aroma which is fresh, citrusy, and pure, without off-flavors. It is colorless and has a clear, transparent appearance with no cloudiness.

Zuvamesa is a leading producer of D-Limonene.
