Avril shuts down two biodiesel plants following wage protests

February 12, 2019 |

In France, Reuters reports that Avril has decided to stop production at its two Saipol biofuel plants following wage protests by workers. Production halted on February 1 at its largest facility near the Port of Rouen as well as another as protests kept the company from being able to purchase rapeseed for feedstock. Short-lived protests were held at another two facilities but didn’t force a shutdown. The company typically crushes 3.5 million metric tons of rapeseed annually to produce 1.3 million tons of biodiesel.
