BDI would install its patented multi-feedstock technology into the plant in order to process locally available raw materials, such as used cooking oil and animal fats, into biodiesel that met the European standard requirements, it added.
The new technology would also increase the efficiency of the plant, which has a capacity of 100,000 tonnes/year of biodiesel, BDI said.
Completion of the upgrades was scheduled for September 2011, with the project taking fewer than 12 months from when the contract took effect, it added.

“With the innovative BDI multi-feedstock technology, we enable our customers to make more flexible and economic use of raw materials that are available locally, while helping to reduce environmental impact and make sensible use of waste materials,” he added.
As part of the commission, BDI would cover all the stages in the different processes required for distillation, steel construction and auxiliary equipment of the existing plant, which started up in 2008.
