LONDON (ICIS)--Wratislavia-Bio has announced plans to manufacture third-generation biofuel component from algae, the Poland-based producer said on Friday.

The component would be produced at a new plant costing zlotych (Zl) 80m ($25.6m, €19.2m) in Wroclaw, in the Lower Silesia region of southwestern Poland, it added.

The production capacity of the plant, to be completed during 2013, would be 40,000 tonnes/year, the company said.

Wratislavia-Bio already produces biodiesel component at a 150,000 tonne/year fatty acid methyl esters plant which uses rapeseed as feedstock.

The company also produces raw glycerol.
