is there any data on the pharma grade vs crude pricing

Clarification of Answer by pafalafa-ga on 15 Mar 2006 08:08 PST

You can see pricing for USP grade glycerin here:

which puts the price at $64.99 for 4 liters, or $16.25 per liter.

I did not see any quotes for bulk purchases, however.  

If you need additional information, just let me know.

Here are some other quotes for USP grade glycerin:

including a bulk price of $1574.05 (why .05???) for 200 liters, or
about $7.87 per liter.
