Inventure announces construction of a commercial scale process plant using its MSCF technology in China
Tuscaloosa, Alabama – Inventure Renewables, Inc. has announced construction of a commercial scale plant for Wilmar (China) Oleochemicals Co., Ltd. The commercial scale plant will be used to convert a waste vegetable oil byproduct into intermediate materials, which can be further processed into higher value food, feed and industrial products, including biodiesel.
“We’re very excited to be working with Wilmar (China) Oleochemicals Co., Ltd.,” said Mark Tegen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Inventure Renewables. “The recent selection of Inventure’s Mixed Super Critical Fluid (MSCF) technology over competing alternatives is notable and would not have been possible without the compelling case for improved operational efficiencies that our technology offers.”
Inventure has provided a complete solution for Wilmar including basic engineering, detailed engineering, equipment design, fabrication, supervision of installation and start up support. It’s the company’s goal to provide comprehensive client solutions.
