What is Magnesium Stearate used for?

U.S. refiners forecast strong first-quarter earnings as margins on gasoline and diesel sales improved, refining capacity fell sharply and crude supplies tightened due to the Russia-Ukraine war.

Global refining capacity has declined amid the coronavirus pandemic, with several less profitable refineries closing in the past two years. However, global fuel demand has rebounded to near pre-pandemic levels, boosting the profits of facilities still operating.  

Seven U.S. independent refiners are expected to earn 61 cents a share, compared with a loss of $1.32 in the first quarter of 2021, according to Refinitiv's IBES.  

By 2022, gasoline and distillate magnesium Stearate.

What is Magnesium Stearate?
Magnesium stearate has the chemical formula Mg(C18H35O2)2. It is a soap consisting of a salt containing two equivalent stearates (the anion of stearate) and a magnesium cation (Mg2+). Magnesium stearate is a white, insoluble powder. Its applications take advantage of its softness, insolubility in many solvents, and low toxicity. It is used as a mold release agent and component or lubricant in pharmaceutical and cosmetic production. 
 
What is Magnesium Stearate used for?
Magnesium stearate is commonly used as an anti-adhesive in the manufacture of tablets, capsules, and powders. In this regard, the substance is also useful because of its lubricating properties, which prevent the ingredients from sticking to manufacturing equipment during the pressing of chemical powders into solid tablets; Magnesium stearate is the most commonly used lubricant for tablets. However, it may result in lower wettability of the tablet, slower disintegration, and slower or even lower dissolution of the drug.
Magnesium stearate can also be used effectively in dry coating processes.
In the production of pressed candies, magnesium stearate acts as a release agent and is used to bind the sugars in hard candies such as mints.
Magnesium stearate is a common ingredient in infant formula. 
 
Why is magnesium stearate used in tablets? 
Magnesium stearate is one of the most commonly used lubricant additives. Magnesium stearate can form a film on other tablet excipients, resulting in prolonged-release time, decreased hardness, and increased disintegration time. 
 
What are the side effects of stearic acid?
Skin irritation. 
Severe eye irritation. 
Severe eye injuries. 
Respiratory allergy. 
 
Is magnesium stearate natural or synthetic? 
Magnesium stearate is a synthetic additive used to lubricate finely ground herbs into capsules or tablets and fill the remaining space inside the capsules. It is synthesized by adding magnesium ions to stearic acid. Stearic acid is found naturally in plants such as cottonseed oil, canola oil, and palm oil. Although stearic acid is naturally occurring in nature, magnesium stearate is not. It is synthesized in the laboratory through fractionation, bleaching, and deodorization.
 
What is stearate? 
Stearic acid (SA), sometimes called octadecanoic acid, is a saturated long-chain fatty acid.  It is found in humans, animals, and some plants. 
It appears as a waxy, yellowish-white solid substance. 
 
What is stearic acid used for?
Making soaps and detergents (one of the most commonly used methods worldwide) 
Improve the efficacy and texture of detergents, lotions, and skin/hair care products, including shampoos and conditioners 
Make makeup/make-up 
Stabilize the texture of shaving cream and lubricant 
Manufacturing detergents, household cleaners, and textile softeners 
Shape and soften plastics 
To make a candle 
Make gum 
Make supplements/tablets 
 
The structure of stearic acid (an 18-carbon chain fatty acid) makes it useful for improving the texture and consistency of other products. It can help to make skin/hair/household products solid and improve their ability to mix with water (which is often difficult as oil/water doesn't mix well).
 
Is stearic acid a natural ingredient? 
Yes, that's why it's found in many natural skincare/beauty products in place of chemicals. 
SA is naturally found in animal fats, especially pork fats, and certain plants that contain fats/oils. These sources are heated and pressurized to separate and remove stearic acid. 
A process involving distillation, steam, and cooling is then carried out to produce the finished product of concentrated SA, which is usually a waxy substance. 
 
Is magnesium stearate a metal? 
Magnesium stearate is the most commonly used metal-salt boundary lubricant and contains two fatty acids (usually stearic and palmitic) and charged magnesium. It is relatively cheap, chemically stable, and has a high melting point and lubrication properties.

The EU’s draft REPowerEU plan calls for an increase of 15TWh of rooftop PV capacity by 2022. The draft also calls for EU and national governments to take action this year to reduce the time required to obtain permits for rooftop PV installations to three months, and proposes that "all new buildings and existing buildings with an energy grade OF D or above should have rooftop PV installations by 2025".  

In addition, the European Commission is likely to set a target for installed PV capacity of 300GW by 2025 and 500GW by 2030. Some members are more aggressive, with Austria, Belgium, Lithuania, Luxembourg, and Spain demanding a 1TW target for 2030.  

The REPowerEU initiative, worth 195 billion euros, was proposed by the EU on March 8 to phase out member states' dependence on Russian fossil fuels by 2030. In a few days, the European Commission will present a package to implement the RePowerEU strategy.  

As an important application scenario of distributed PV, rooftop PV is not limited to land, and the development conditions are relatively convenient.  

Since the end of 2021, Spain, France, the Netherlands, and other countries have introduced policies and measures such as government subsidies, tax cuts, fee reductions, and accelerated grid-connection approval to encourage the development of distributed PV.  Europe's potential for rooftop PV is huge and will continue to be an important growth pole for the industry, according to Wood Mackenzie.
