Elevance starts shipment from Indonesia biorefinery

Elevance Renewable Sciences and Wilmar International announced that they have begun shipping commercial products, including novel specialty chemicals, to customers worldwide from their first world-scale joint venture biorefinery located in Gresik, Indonesia, which started operations this year.

The biorefinery, which has a capacity of 180 ktpy (400m lbs) and expandable to 360 ktpy, is Elevance's first biorefinery using its proprietary metathesis technology. The company said it is now working with their partners such as France-based specialty chemical company Arkema and US-based surfactants producer Stepan to meet product demand and accelerate deployment and commercialization of their high-performance chemicals in end user application. Other companies that Elevance has partnered with include Dow Corning, Clariant, DSM, and Hutchinson Worldwide.
