BASF could build a biodiesel plant in Argentina inputs

BASF could start in two years to build its second factory in South America for sodium methylate, a catalyst used for the production of biodiesel.

The plant may be built in 2014 in Brazil and Argentina, said Kerstin Dünnwald, head of business management for inorganic chemicals in Ludwigshafen, Germany, according to a Bloomberg wire agency.

"The market for biodiesel will grow with the demand for fuel," said Dünnwald in a telephone interview. "It ESTNA addressing the issue of an increase in existing blends (biodiesel with diesel," he added.

The project may be similar to plant tons for 60,000 years BASF began operation last year in Guaratinguetá, Brazil, said the manager of the company.

Argentina is mixed 7 percent of its conventional diesel with biodiesel, while Brazil is blended 5 percent.
