Cargill’s Wichita biodiesel plant online, operating at capacity

By Ron Kotrba | October 16, 2019

Cargill’s 60 MMgy biodiesel plant in Wichita, Kansas, is now operating at capacity, a spokesperson for the company told Biodiesel Magazine. Plans for the $90 million project were first announced in September 2017. Construction began a few months later, and the plant opened this past July, Biodiesel Magazine has confirmed.

The new biodiesel manufacturing facility is located next to Cargill’s oilseed processing plant and replaced an existing soybean oil refinery.

Air Liquide Engineering & Construction was contracted for engineering, having already built six biodiesel plants for Cargill around the world, using its Lurgi biodiesel process technology.
