Further large order placed with the Austrian company BDI - BioEnergy International AG

(PresseBox) (Grambach/Graz, ) ARGENT Energy, a company based in Motherwell, Scotland, has commissioned the Styrian specialist for particularly difficult cases to expand the existing biodiesel plant, so that it will also be able in future to process raw materials from the fat industry into high-quality biodiesel which have had to be incinerated up to now because no better alternatives have been available. The value of this order for BDI is EUR 3.1 million.

BDI is opting in this project for an innovative new fat processing system and, above all, for a specially developed pressure esterification process of the kind that was already introduced very successfully recently at a major plant in the Port of Amsterdam.

The plant in Scotland is an EU demonstration plant built by BDI in 2005 that will be able to process very difficult waste materials from meat production or the catering industry as well once it has been expanded as planned with this project. These materials will as a result be removed from the animal feed market in a controlled way, while they will at the same time be used to generate high local added value. For BDI customers, it goes without saying that the biodiesel obtained from such sustainable renewable raw materials also meets the strict requirements of the EU biodiesel standard EN 14214 as well as all the quality and environmental requirements on what are known as second-generation biofuels.The project is to be completed and the plant handed over to the customer in less than 10 months.

"Years of experience and intensive research are paying off. We are registering increasing global interest in our trendsetting technology and the appropriate disposal of waste materials in a way that does not compete with food production. It is therefore only natural that we are offering other suppliers this intelligent and innovative concept for their plants too, since they can increase the efficiency and economic performance of their operations significantly as a result", says Wilhelm Hammer, CEO of BDI.
