Xytel is proud to announce its partnership with Solugen, recipient of the HBJ’s inaugural Innovation Awards in 2019, for the construction of its new plant in 2020 and 2021.
“Solugen broke ground on a 15,000-square-foot plant. Sean Hunt, co-founder and CTO of Solugen, said that the new plant will enable the company to ramp up its production capacity to over 10,000 tons of its bio-based chemicals per year — up from the hundreds of tons the company current produces. In line with Solugen’s green focus, the new plant will be powered entirely by wind energy, he said.
Solugen’s core business focuses on producing oxidizers and scale- and corrosion-control products for water treatment. The company’s bio-based chemical products are sold to customers in energy, water treatment, cleaning and agriculture.
The new facility will be Solugen’s second “mini-mill,” where the company converts bio-based feedstocks into its core chemistries. Solugen built its first mini-mill in Slaton, outside of Lubbock in West Texas.”
