With the initiation of pre-commissioning activities and site operational verification, start-up of the first phase of the USD 50 million investment marks a key milestone in the expansion project designed to boost capacity and technical capabilities in the manufacturing of bio-based polyols for the automotive, furniture and bedding, and major appliances industries. First announced in 2012, the project has recently reached initial production goals in the area of renewable-based polyols, using the company's ozonolysis technology, said Emery Oleochemicals. The second phase adjoins in this same manufacturing complex and is in its final building stage with civil and structural installation at various process units nearing completion. It will produce recyclable polyols and marks the integration of InfiGreen technology acquired in 2012.
