McDermott Reaches Mechanical Completion on Pioneering Biosurfactants Project

McDermott today announced the mechanical completion of a pioneering industrial-scale biosurfactant plant for Evonik. Less than two years after the contract award, Evonik has achieved initial production of Rhamnolipids, a bacterial surfactant that can transform cleaning products and significantly reduce their environmental impact fundamentally.

The project positions Evonik, a specialty chemicals company, as a pioneer of high-quality, sustainable biosurfactants on a commercial scale.

The contract scope included engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) services for a new biosurfactant plant. The engineering and procurement services were executed from McDermott’s office in Brno, Czech Republic, and the construction management was performed at Evonik’s site in Slovakia. 

“This is an incredible achievement, completed in a short time, thanks to the enduring commitment of our team and their seamless collaboration with Evonik,” said Rob Shaul, McDermott’s Senior Vice President, of Low Carbon Solutions. “The high-performance Rhamnolipids significantly advance the growing biosurfactant market and are setting a precedent as part of a broader sustainable chemicals revolution, bringing sustainable cleaning and personal care products to market faster.”

McDermott was selected to partner with Evonik on the pioneering biosurfactants project in 2021.
