Evonik Industries AG is building a new plant for manufacturing catalysts for biodiesel production in Argentina. The plant, which is expected to be operational by the end of 2012 at the latest, will supply ready-to-use alcoholates as catalysts for the production of biodiesel from renewable resources. It will primarily serve markets in Argentina and Brazil, with an annual capacity of over 60,000 metric tons.
The facility is located in the center of the Argentine biodiesel industry in Puerto General San Martin in the greater Rosario metropolitan area. Evonik will be part of a site where Terminal 6 S.A. operates a major biodiesel facility.
