SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--South Korea’s MH Bioenergy plans to restart its bioethanol plant in Kandal, Cambodia, in October or November when the new crop of feedstock cassava starts, a company source said on Tuesday.
The plant had not been operating this year due to unavailability of the cassava crop because of damage by disease and insects.
The plant has a capacity of 40,000 kilolitres/year anhydrous ethanol and 25,000 kilolitres/year of hydrous ethanol. It needs an annual supply of around 100,000 tonnes of dry cassava flour as a raw material.
Ethanol goes to solvent applications in pharmaceuticals, toiletries and cosmetics, detergents and household cleaners, coatings and inks and processing solvents.
