Greenergy to buy idle biodiesel manufacturing facility in Amsterdam

July 19, 2018 |

In the UK, Greenergy has reached an agreement with Oiltanking, a leading tank terminal operator, to purchase an idle biodiesel manufacturing facility located at Oiltanking’s site in Amsterdam. The acquisition of a third biodiesel plant will allow Greenergy to meet growing demand for waste-based biofuel in the UK and Europe.

The Amsterdam biodiesel manufacturing facility was built in 2010 to process vegetable oils but was never commissioned. Greenergy plans to carry out works over the next year to convert the facility to process waste oils rather than vegetable oils and then to add further production capacity.

Greenergy already owns two major biodiesel manufacturing facilities on the east coast of England, at Immingham and Teesside, making it Europe’s largest manufacturer of biodiesel from waste. These plants were both also originally designed to process vegetable oils and have been successfully adapted by Greenergy to process waste oils with a wide range of different quality characteristics.
