LONDON (ICIS news)--BioDiesel International (BDI) has been commissioned to build a 100,000 tonne/year biodiesel plant for BioDiesel Amsterdam, the Austria-based plant builder said on Tuesday.

The €31m ($44m) facility would be built in the port of Amsterdam with production expected to start during 2010.

BDI said the plant would utilise a mixed feedstock of used cooking oil and animal fats.

The project would be part of a “future-oriented energy park” in the port, which would also include a biogas plant for converting the by-products of biodiesel production into heat and electricity.

BioDiesel Amsterdam is part of Greenmills, a joint initiative which uses waste flows from various processes as raw materials to produce biofuels and 'green' power.
