Evonik Industries opens new catalyst plant in Argentina

By Ron Kotrba | October 28, 2013

On Oct. 21, Essen, Germany-based Evonik Industries started up a new plant for manufacturing biodiesel production catalysts in Argentina. With an annual capacity of more than 60,000 metric tons, the new production plant will supply ready-to-use alkoxides for use as catalysts in biodiesel production from renewable raw materials. The new catalyst production center will serve primarily the Argentine and Brazilian markets. Evonik located the plant on the same site as Terminal 6 S.A., which operates a large biodiesel facility. In 2009, Evonik opened a similar plant in Alabama to serve North American biodiesel markets.
