Hey developments by the players in this market are:

  • Cargill and Helm Company entered into a joint venture in June 2021 to construct a US$ 300 million commercial-scale 1,4-butanediol plant under the JV Qore. This facility will assist well-known brands in switching from fossil-based chemicals to bio-based intermediates, therefore lowering their greenhouse gas emissions.
  • The Austrian refiner OMV stated in March 2021 that it will construct a pilot plant at its 200,000 b/d Schwechat refinery to start producing advanced biofuels in 2023 using glycerol derived from waste. The factory is anticipated to employ a catalyst to convert glycerol, a waste product or byproduct of the manufacturing of biodiesel, into 1.23 million liters of propanol annually.
