BUENOS AIRES (ICIS)--Argentine biodiesel producer Oil Fox has opened a 100,000 tonne/year plant in San Nicolas, Buenos Aires, an executive said on Tuesday.
“At the beginning the plant will operate using a combination of soy oil and algae. But in the long term we aim to use only algae as raw material,” Oil Fox president Jorge Kaloustian told ICIS.
The company also has an agreement with YPF to supply the Argentine refiner with 50,000 tonnes/year of biodiesel.
Oil Fox also operates a soy-based biodiesel plant in Chabas, Santa Fe.
