Fuelling Indonesia

JJ-Lurgi commissions the first vegetable-based alcohol plant for Sinar Mas Cepsa in Indonesia.
JJ-Lurgi has successfully delivered a 200-kilotonne-per-year oleochemical plant to Sinar Mas Cepsa (a joint venture between Golden Agri, the palm oil unit of Indonesia’s Sinar Mas group and Spain-based oil and gas group Cepsa) — giving the world’s second largest palm oil producer its first major downstream fatty alcohol facility.
This mega project adds another milestone to JJ-Lurgi’s growth in Indonesia and strengthens the company’s reputation as a reliable technology provider with strong engineering capabilities.

About 160 kilotonnes of the plant’s annual capacity is designated for fatty alcohol, which is a key ingredient in liquid soaps and personal care products. The remaining capacity of 40 kilotonnes will come from fatty acids, which are more suitable for powdered detergents and glycerine.
The plant sits in Dumai on the Indonesian island of Sumatra and uses sustainably-sourced palm kernel oil to serve the Asian and European markets.
