February 2, 2023 |

In Hong Kong, South China Morning Post reported that Ecoceres, a unit of local gas distributor Hong Kong and China Gas (Towngas), will soon start building a second plant to turn waste oil into low-carbon fuel for aircraft and vehicles. “Now that our first plant in China is performing well, we are designing our second plant in Malaysia, which will soon proceed to the construction phase,” Ecoceres’ CEO Philip Siu Kam-shing was quoted as saying. The planned plant in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, will be able to produce 350,000 tons of low-carbon fuel a year from used cooking oil and waste water from palm-oil mills. The completion of the facility is expected to take two years, according to the report. Ecoceres’ waste-oil processing plant in Zhangjiagang, China, has the capacity to produce 100,000 tons of low-carbon aviation fuel and 200,000 tons of renewable diesel fuel a year.
