Evonik Corporation Key Developments

Evonik Corporation Completes Capacity Expansion at Sodium Methylate Plant in Mobile

Evonik Corporation has completed a capacity expansion at its sodium methylate plant in Mobile, Alabama. The company has increased capacity to 72,000 metric tons per year through operational excellence, as well as infrastructure investments. Although sodium methylate is used in various applications including pharmaceuticals, polymers and agrochemicals synthesis, it has become the catalyst of choice for modern large-scale biodiesel production accounting for more than 80% of the biodiesel produced in North America. The company has also increased its rail fleet for sodium methylate ensuring that the additional volume will be available throughout the US. Sodium methylate serves an important function as a catalyst in the production of biodiesel, renewable biofuel that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and therefore contributes to more sustainable environment.
