Air Liquide Engineering & Construction has signed a new agreement with Cargill for engineering and supply of a world-scale biodiesel plant in Kansas, US.
The state-of-the-art biodiesel plant, located in Wichita, is planned to start operation in January 2019 and will produce 60m gallons of biodiesel per year.
Speaking about the new agreement, Domenico D’Elia, Vice-President and Chairman of Air Liquide Engineering & Construction, said, “This is yet another proof of the competitiveness of our most advanced and best performing biodiesel technology. We extend our leadership in Europe and Asia in this field and our ambition is to achieve the same result in the Americas.”
The agreement is another step in the long term partnership between the two companies. Air Liquide Engineering & Construction has already built six biodiesel plants for Cargill worldwide.
Air Liquide Engineering & Construction’s Lurgi biodiesel technology offers a complete oleochemical production chain and provides customers with a range of plant options designed to maximise efficiency, improve the quality of the product, help to minimise operating costs and environmental footprint.
For the second consecutive year, Air Liquide is taking part in the Monte-Carlo eRally, a motorsport endurance race organised by Monaco Automobile Club, in which only 100% zero-emission, battery and hydrogen H2-powered electric cars are allowed to compete.
Air Liquide Engineering & Construction has been selected by Kinetrex Energy to upgrade their North Plant LNG production unit in Indianapolis, Indiana, US, by replacing the cold box with the SmartfinTM proprietary technology.
