Air Liquide to build Kansas biodiesel plant for Cargill
December 04, 2017
French engineering and construction firm Air Liquide has signed an agreement with agribusiness giant Cargill for the construction of a new biodiesel plant in Kansas, USA.
The state-of-the-art plant, to be located in the city of Wichita, would have a production capacity of 278M litres/year, Gasworld reported on 24 November 2017.
The agreement marks a further step in the collaboration between the two companies. Air Liquide has already built six biodiesel plants for Cargill worldwide.
Air Liquide said its Lurgi biodiesel technology provided a complete oleochemical production chain, with a wide range of plant options designed to maximise efficiency, improve product quality and minimise operating costs and environmental footprint.
