Trillium chooses Ineos site

Trillium Renewable Chemicals has chosen Ineos Nitriles’ Green Lake facility in Port Lavaca, Texas, as the site for its Project Falcon demonstration plant to convert plant-based glycerol into acrylonitrile. This should begin operations in early 2025 and will help to validate commercial-scale economics and product carbon footprint at scale, the company said.

After raising $10.6 million in Series A financing and being granted $2.5 million by the US Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office, both in 2022, Trillium built a pilot plant. This produced acrylonitrile with a lower carbon footprint than standard acrylonitrile based on the Sohio propylene process.
