Portuguese firm delivers 2.4 MMgy biodiesel plant to Tunisia
Porto, Portugal-based biodiesel technology provider IncBio announced it has completed construction of an 8,000 ton per year (2.4 MMgy) biodiesel plant and has delivered the unit to Biokast Energy S.A., to be installed in Tunis, Tunisia, a small country in North Africa. In September, Biodiesel Magazine reported that Incbio had a signed contract for construction and delivery of the skid-mounted, ultrasonic unit.
Due to its skidded construction, the plant was fully built prior to shipping, thus requiring minimal assembly on site. Incbio stated it will take less than a week from arrival to start up, minimizing installation costs and delays, and allowing the company to quickly move the plant to a new location if necessary.
The plant will be used to process used cooking oil collected from restaurants in Tunis.
