In Delaware, work has begun on the $170 million upgrade to the Croda facility near New Castle that will convert corn-based ethanol into ethylene oxide for use in the company’s various products from cosmetics to detergents. The upgrade is expected to come online in 2017, with installations such as the steel frame that will house the main processor reactor already complete. Currently the company ships the hazardous material by rail from Texas for use in the Atlas Point facility.
