Global agricultural giant Cargill plans to invest 300 million US dollars to build a bio-based BDO plant

Echemi 2021-06-11

On June 8, American agri-food giant Cargill announced that it will cooperate with German chemical company Helm to build a bio-based 1,4-butanediol (BDO) plant.

The plant will be built around Cargill’s existing facilities in Eddyville, Iowa, USA. The total investment is estimated to be US$300 million and will produce 65,000 tons of BDO per year. It is planned to be put into operation in 2024.

Cargill said it uses the technology of the American biotechnology producer Genomatica to produce renewable BDO. Compared with current production technology, it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 93%.
