New BDI plant in Hong-Kong converts fats into biodiesel
22. Mai 2012
(Grambach, 2/4/2012) BDI – BioEnergy International AG – have obtained an expansion of their order for a multi-feedstock biodiesel plant in Hong-Kong. Following completion, the plant is to produce 100,000 tons of biodiesel per year, and in that mainly uses grease trap fats as raw material.The customer ASB Biodiesel (Hong Kong Ltd.) had made its […]
The customer ASB Biodiesel (Hong Kong Ltd.) had made its decision in favour of BDI a while ago already. Due to company-internal restructuring on the customer’s side, the project was delayed for quite some time. In the course of resumption of the project, BDI was able to obtain an expansion of the order by 9 million Euros.
For BDI, this project is the entry into the Asian market and is a significant milestone for the corporate strategy. The multi-feedstock biodiesel plant now presumably is to be commissioned in 2013. As raw materials, mainly fats from grease traps will be used. Grease traps are used, among others, in canteen kitchens, restaurants and supermarkets. They separate fats and oils from the wastewater and prevent that fat-containing wastewater gets into the sewage system unfiltered. In that, however, the fat portion often only lies at 3 % to 5 %. Additionally, used cooking oil and animal fat can be used as raw materials in the plant in Hong-Kong.
Worldwide, this plant will be the first one of this size, which almost exclusively works with grease trap fat. Since naturally this raw material is highly contaminated, it is extremely difficult to process it into high-quality biodiesel. The technology of BDI enables producing biodiesel with highest quality – which fulfils the strictest quality standards worldwide – from this raw material in an environmentally friendly and resource-protecting process.
“Therewith, our customer solves the disposal problem of many small companies collecting grease trap fats and used cooking oils. In addition, it contributes to the fact that these wastes are no longer disposed of in an uncontrolled fashion in the South China Sea. We are very happy that meanwhile our offers meet with such positive feedback worldwide. The order is a very good reference for us”, saysEdgar Ahn, Chief Sales Officer at BDI.
