REG completes upgrades at German biorefinery

July 22, 2017 |

In Germany, Renewable Energy Group, Inc. completed upgrades at their biorefinery in Emden after having invested almost $3 million (€2.5 million) for a new thermal oil heater and a new biodiesel distillation column. Emden is one of their two German biorefineries and REG acquired it earlier this year after investing in the former Petrotec AG.

Brad Albin, vice president of manufacturing at REG told Biodiesel Magazine, “This project is a result of teamwork across REG’s teams in Europe and the U.S. Upgrading Emden’s distillation capability enables us to more effectively convert lower-cost feedstocks into higher-quality, lower-carbon fuel that improves our environment.”
