SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Austria’s BDI-BioEnergy International said on Tuesday it has been commissioned by ASB Biodiesel to build its 100,000 tonne/year multi-feedstock biodiesel plant in Hong Kong.

The plant is expected to start up in 2013 and will use grease-trap waste as its primary feedstock, the Austrian firm said in a statement.

Grease traps are devices used to separate grease and oil from waste water, according to the firm.

“It will be the first plant of this size in the world that operates almost exclusively on the basis of grease trap waste,” BDI said.

The plant in Hong Kong will also be able to process used cooking oil and animal fat as raw materials, it added.

Output from the plant will meet the European EN 14214 biodiesel fuel standard and the sustainability requirements under the EU's Renewable Energy Directive, according to the website of Hong-Kong based ASB.
