LONDON (ICIS news)--DAKA Biodiesel has opened its 50,000 tonne/year biodiesel plant in Denmark, BDI, the Austrian construction company which built it, said on Friday.

 

The multi-feedstock facility, at Losning, will use animal fats from DAKA’s rendering plant to produce the fuel, the company said.

 

“This feedstock cannot be used for processing in food or animal feed production,” BDI said in a statement.

 

“We are very satisfied with this project, since not only locally available raw materials can be converted to biodiesel according to the European Standard (EN 14214), but this plant has also been optimised in terms of energy saving,” said BDI management board chairman Wilhelm Hammer.
