EDDYVILLE, Iowa, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --


Construction officially gets underway Thursday, August 22, in Eddyville, Iowa, on what will become a Salt Conversion plant at Cargill's Eddyville biorefinery complex. HF Chlor-Alkali, LLC, a newly formed affiliate of Indianapolis-based Harris & Ford, LLC will make caustic soda, muriatic acid and bleach on 29 acres at the Cargill Eddyville complex. The plant will produce a minimum of 100,000 dry short tons of caustic soda and 250,000 short tons of muriatic acid per year. It will serve all of Cargill's U.S. plants as well as other customers, with first product expected to roll off the lines in early 2015. As with other companies co-located at the Iowa Bioprocessing Center, HF Chlor-Alkali, LLC will receive its water supply and wastewater treatment from Cargill. Cargill will also invest in pipelines to connect the two companies. This project will add at least 25 new jobs in Eddyville, IA and support close to 750 indirect jobs across Iowa. Representatives from HF Chlor-Alkali, LLC and Cargill will speak about how this will benefit the community. They will be joined by other local, state and congressional officials including Iowa Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds and Iowa Governor Terry Branstad.
