SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Elevance Renewable Sciences and palm oil major Wilmar are on track to start up their joint venture biofuel and bio-olefin plant in Gresik, Indonesia, by the end of the year, an Elevance official said on Friday.
“The plant, which will use palm oil as feedstock, will initially have a capacity of 180,000 tonnes/year which is expandable to 360,000 tonnes/year,” said Andy Corr, platform leader – consumer intermediates and ingredients, with Elevance, on the sidelines of the 2nd ICIS Asian Surfactants Conference.
About 80% of the output from the facility will consist of biofuel, while the remaining 20% will be bio-olefin, a key ingredient for jet fuel.
Elevance is also setting up a 300,000 tonne/year wholly-owned biofuel facility at ?xml:namespace>
