Description

The General Lagos project calls for the construction of a sodium methylate production plant at German chemical firm Basf's General Lagos site in Rosario, Argentina. Sodium methylate is a catalyst for the production of biodiesel, which is used increasingly as an alternative to fossil diesel fuels. This will be Basf's second sodium methylate facility in South America as the company looks to strengthen its regional presence in one of the most important growth markets for biodiesel. Basf expects some 20% of annual global demand for biodiesel, which is about 30Mt, to come from South America.
