LONDON (ICIS)--BDI BioEnergy International will build a multi-feedstock BioGas plant in northern France, following a commission from a French customer, the Austria-based biofuels firm said on Monday.

The build will begin before the end of 2011 and will produce almost 4.2m normal cubic meters of biogas and 2.1 megawatts of electricity per year. The name of the French customer which commissioned the build and the exact location of the plant were not disclosed.

BDI expects construction of the plant to be completed some time in 2012.

"The high flexibility, functional reliability and economic viability of our multi-feedstock technology have already been proved impressively in our BioDiesel plants,” said Edgar Ahn, BDI chief sales officer.

“We are benefitting from our many years of experience in the generation of energy from residual and waste materials in the introduction of our BioGas technology; a French waste disposal company is opting for the BDI technology for the generation of renewable energy from food waste," he added.

BDI said the plant has been designed so its capacity can be doubled easily in the future. The company added that the order volume amounts to €4.45m ($5.78m).

"This commission is further evidence that we have chosen the right technologies and that the market for BioGas plants has tremendous global growth potential," said Ahn.
