Evonik to expand Argentine sodium methylate production to support Latam biodiesel industry

December 3, 2019 |

In Argentina, Evonik plans to increase its capacity for sodium methylate at its Rosario/Santa Fe facility from 60,000 metric tons up to 90,000 metric tons until 2021.

The expansion is driven by growing demand for biodiesel in South America, mainly Argentina and Brazil. Sodium methylate is an important catalyst for large-scale biodiesel production.

In addition to the increase in capacity, Evonik Functional Solutions is also investing in infrastructure and logistics improvements in South America, including expanded storage solutions in the region. These developments will ensure continuous high supply reliability to its customers. A string of recent biodiesel production capacity additions in the region reflect the increased importance of the product in Central & South America.
