Epicerol plant recognized as Commercial Scale Plant of the Year finalist.
The Advanced Biochemical Thailand (ABT) Epicerol plant was among the top three finalists for 'Commercial Scale Plant of the Year.' The prestigious accolade was announced at the WBM Bio Business Awards in Amsterdam.
Since its startup in 2012, the Epicerol plant has fully demonstrated its ability to compete against traditional oil-based production. "Solvay and ABT are proud to have been recognized for our worldclass Epicerol plant," said Thibaud Caulier, Senior Marketing Manager at Solvay. "We are breaking new ground in renewable chemicals and supplying market-competitive bio-based ECH at commercial-scale."
Epicerol's commercial development has capitalized on its distinctive assets. These allow the ABT plant to keep producing at more than 70% of its nominal capacity, significantly higher than the ECH industry average in Asia. Epicerol also partner with leading companies down the value chain who valorise the bio-based ECH in applications.
