Construction of the plant would be in two phases, with the initial 100,000 tonne/year unit to kick off soon, the official from Yangxin Economic Development Zone Administration Commission said. The second-phase 100,000 tonne/year plant would be built after the first unit was up and running smoothly, the official added.
Oil crops and hogwash oil would be used as feedstock for biodiesel production, according to the official.
The waste gas emission from biodiesel was lower than that of common diesel, as the sulphur content in biodiesel was minimal, said the official, adding that the development of the biodiesel industry would be consistent with the commission’s environmental protection policy.
Shandong Yangxin Yihai Bioenergy Technology Co's officials could not be immediately reached for comments.
