HOUSTON (ICIS news)--US agribusiness major Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) will delay opening its renewable propylene glycol (PG) plant until the first quarter of 2010, the company said on Wednesday.

The company said the delay was caused by the typical challenges of opening a project of its size. The plant in Decatur, Illinois, will produce 100,000 tonnes/year of PG from glycerine and sorbitol.

The delay forestalls what US glycerine market players think will be a mammoth draw on their material.
