Import-Export GmbH


Our products are renewable raw materials that are primarily extracted from pines and citrus fruits—terpenes.


What are terpenes?

Terpenes are organic compounds made of 10 carbon atoms that are created naturally by plants. Pines are the greatest source of terpenes.

Another source are the essential oils of citrus fruits, which are primarily produced in Brazil and Florida.

The majority of terpenes meet the GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) requirements of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the FEMA (Flavor Extracts Manufacturing Association).

They are permitted for use in the food production industry.

They are primarily used in the detergent industry and for paints & coatings. Terpenes are biodegradable, practically insoluble and do not affect the ozone layer.
