SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Singapore-listed agribusiness firm Wilmar International will build a natural alcohol plant in the Netherlands that will supply US producer Huntsman, the companies said on Monday.

The plant, which will be built at Huntsman’s 85-hectare chemical site at Rozenburg in Rotterdam, is scheduled to come on stream by 2013, the companies added.

The size of the proposed plant and financial details of the project were not disclosed.

The project is still subject to regulatory approvals.

“We look forward to being more involved in the local chemical community and strengthening our foothold in Europe, including for bio-based chemicals, with a brand new natural alcohol plant," said Kuok Khoon Hong, chairman and CEO of Wilmar International.
