In Alabama, Inventure Renewables has announced the successful implementation and nearly year-long operation of its Mixed Super Critical Fluid technology at a Wilmar International processing plant in Jiangsu province, China. The technology is being used to produce FAME for oleochemicals and biodiesel from a wide range of vegetable oil feedstocks.
“The launch of the plant in Taizhou, China is a validation of our MSCF technology’s scalability to a commercial level,” said Mark Tegen, chief executive officer of Inventure. “The plant is an example of the end-to-end, customized solutions Inventure provides for agribusiness.”
“Inventure has worked closely with us throughout the integration of their technology at our Jiangsu plant,” said Rahul Kale, Group Head of Oleochemicals and Biofuels at Wilmar International Limited. “We are beginning to realize tangible returns from the use of Inventure’s technology.”
