Jim Breuer, group president of Fluor’s Energy Solutions business says: ‘We are excited to be a part of this important project that will reduce food waste, resulting in decreased methane emissions from landfills and a lower carbon footprint.’

Fluor’s scope of work consists of modifications to the existing facility and a new, second production line that will increase capacity by 21,000 TPA.

When complete and operational in 2025, the Saltend Chemicals Park EVOH facility will be Mitsubishi Chemical Group’s second largest SoarnoL site in the world.
