BDI-BioEnergy Int'l contracted to upgrade Spanish biodiesel plant

By Ron Kotrba | August 08, 2013

Austria-based BDI-BioEnergy International AG signed a contract with its existing customer Stocks del valles in Spain to upgrade the 31,000-ton (9.3 MMgy) facility to process multiple, lower-grade feedstocks. As part of BDI-BioEnergy’s “RetroFit Program,” the company will install a new type of pre-esterification unit, allowing use of waste animal fats, trap grease and other waste oils high in free fatty acids.

“We are very pleased to support our customer with a long-term business relationship, to optimize his existing biodiesel plant to the state-of-the-art multifeedstock technique,” said Edgar Ahn, BDI-BioEnergy International’s chief science officer and member of the board. “This is another proof that our retrofit technology is increasingly in demand for international biodiesel plants. In addition, it provides an efficient way for biodiesel producers to increase the profitability of their existing plants with the experience and the technology of BDI.”
