New Player Enters Chlor-Alkali Field

Department: Business | Collection: Green Chemistry, Economy

Midwest Chlor-Alkali, a newly formed affiliate of the Indianapolis-based chemical distributor Harris & Ford, will build a plant at Cargill's corn-milling facility in Eddyville, Iowa, to make sodium hydroxide, hydrochloric acid, and bleach. The facility will cost $68 million and is expected to start production in 2009. Cargill will provide wastewater treatment and water to the new plant and use some of its output in the corn-milling process.
