Lemartec celebrates an exciting groundbreaking ceremony for a large Chlor-Alkali processing plant in Eddyville, Iowa. Accompanying Lemartec in this groundbreaking ceremony was strategic partner, H&F Chlor-Alkali, LLC, Conve & AVS, Inc., EPC contractor, and BRPH, Lemartec’s design-consultant for the project.
The 28.8-acre site will be used to produce caustic soda, hydrochloric acid and bleach and is part of the Cargill Eddyville complex, also known as the Iowa Bioprocessing Center. The plant will have an average capacity rate of 100,000 short tons per year NaOH (sodium hydroxide) and deliver at battery limits 32% and 50% caustic soda, 35% hydrochloric acid and high strength sodium hypochlorite. The plant will also create about 25 new jobs in the Eddyville area and approximately 750 indirect jobs across Iowa.
Lemartec was contracted to perform complete design-build services for the project.
