Degussa considers alkoxide production for biodiesel

By | May 25, 2007
Alkoxides, used as a catalyzing agent in the biodiesel transesterification process, are essential to many biodiesel production methods. Degussa, a chemical company based in Dusseldorf, Germany, is planning to build a 60,000-metric-ton alkoxide production facility at its existing chemicals complex in Mobile, Ala., which has been operating since 1978. The project is slated to cost at least $13 million. "An additional production facility in North America is desirable in the interests of speed and customer proximity," said Dr. Thomas Haeberle, head of Degussa's Building Blocks Business Unit.
