Bangchak Petroleum shuts down one biodiesel plant due to flooding

October 14, 2011 |

In Thailand, Bangchak Petroleum has shut down production at its 300,000 liter per day Bang Pa-in biodiesel facility.  The decision was based on concerns regarding disruption of feedstock due to flooding.

While the plant itself is not flooded, acting senior executive vice-president Yodphod Wongrukmit noted that the water level near the gate of the facility’s oil depot, was at 4.57 meters, above the critical height of 4.5 meters.  Should the waters recede, biodiesel production should resume.
