Terpene Portfolio

ADM offers a variety of citrus terpene products to suit any application.

Orange, Lemon and Lime Terpenes

d-Limonene is the major component of the oil extracted from the citrus peel during the citrus juicing process. With an attractive citrus aroma, d-limonene is a naturally occurring biodegradable solvent and degreaser that can be used safely and effectively in a wide range of products. Our terpenes are available from a variety of sources, including orange, lemon and lime, and grades for added versatility.

High Purity d-Limonene—99.4%

High-purity d-limonene is 99.4% pure, meaning it is considerably low in impurities. This leads to cleaner, more neutral products. It is most often used in fine fragrance applications.

Citrus Burst™

Citrus Burst™ products are proprietary citrus-based formulations for specific applications. Available as a high-concentration formulation, they are used as the starting point for a variety of industrial products and include blends of d-limonene, citrus components, vegetable esters and surfactants. All Citrus Burst™ products are formulated with the environment in mind.
