Nowadays, a rapid development of applications of the biomass technology for production of various kinds of materials and chemical products is being observed. The concept of biomass covers wastes and residues of biological origin from the food industry, including waste fats (recycled vegetable oils, waste animal fats). Those wastes create an opportunity for obtaining many valuable raw materials. There are multidirectional possibilities of employing products from biomass processing for production of specialty additives such as plasticizers, lubricants and stabilizers. This is what encourages addressing this issue.
