– Modernization of an existing U.S. plant
After the successful completion of a project in California, BDI – BioEnergy International begins 2017 with an additional RetroFit project on the East Coast of the United States at American GreenFuels, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kolmar Americas, Inc.
Kolmar has contracted with BDI to modernize American GreenFuels’ biodiesel plant in New Haven, Connecticut. BDI will supply engineering and important plant components for the project. The aim of BDI’s customized RetroFit solution is to increase production capacity and feedstock flexibility for the utilization of used cooking oil at the facility.
“The modernization of an existing production plant requires the highest technical expertise and know-how,” said Dr. Hermann Stockinger, BDI’s vice president of global sales. “BDI has successfully completed more than forty BioDiesel projects in the past twenty years. With this strong focus on BioDiesel, our experts have come up with an optimized RetroFit after successfully concluding a pre-engineering project. All of us at BDI are looking forward to making this project a success for American GreenFuels.”
