Cargill building $150M waste-based biodiesel facility in Belgium

October 22, 2020 |

In Belgium, Cargill is constructing a $150 million multi waste- and residues-based biodiesel plant at its existing integrated oilseeds crush and Bioro biodiesel site in Ghent, Belgium.

The plant will use very latest technology of BDI-BioEnergy International GmbH that enables the processing of all types of liquid waste oils and fats, including by-products from food processing, and waste from the food industry, and non-food crops grown on marginal land.

The new plant will have a biodiesel production capacity of 115,000 metric tons per year. Construction will commence in October 2020, with the plant due to open in June 2022. The new facility will create around 20 new direct jobs and an additional 60 indirect jobs in the Ghent community.
