Cargill is preparing to enter the global glycerin business as it gears up to open a 30-million-pound-per-year glycerin refinery in Iowa Falls, IA. The company is actively seeking customers for the product, which will be produced in a refinery adjacent to the company’s new 37.5-million-gallon-capacity biodiesel production plant.
Glycerin is a neutral, colorless, thick liquid with a wide range of food, pharmaceutical and industrial applications. It is highly valued as a skin moisturizer in soaps and lotions, a softening agent in candy and baked goods and a plasticizer in cellophane, to name a few uses. It is noted to be non-toxic and non-irritating with no known negative environmental effects. Cargill will work with a full range of customers to build its glycerin business both domestically and globally. More info: Chris Aud, (800) 842-3631.
