Wilmar to build natural alcohol plant on Huntsman site in Rotterdam

THE WOODLANDS, US: Huntsman Corporation and Wilmar International Limited announced a Memorandum of Understanding between their respective subsidiaries for Wilmar to build a natural alcohol plant at Huntsman’s chemical site in Rozenburg (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) and to supply natural alcohols to Huntsman. The facility is scheduled to come on stream by 2013.

The plant will be owned and operated by Wilmar. The project is subject to receipt of the relevant permits and regulatory approvals. “We are delighted to partner with Wilmar at our Rozenburg site, where we already host a number of other enterprises. This project will be mutually beneficial and will enable us to further grow our green chemistry offer,” said Peter Huntsman, President and CEO, Huntsman Corporation.

“Huntsman Rozenburg’s 85-hectare site in the Europoort area of Rotterdam is very impressive. 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, Wilmar International Limited.
