The largest biodiesel (from waste) producer Greenergy is going to increase production in the Amsterdam port area by more than 25 percent. The company will do this by introducing more efficient and energy-efficient production methods at existing sites. The upgrades are expected to be completed in 2023.
As part of the multi-million dollar investment, Greenergy is also upgrading its processing capacity so that a wider range of waste oils can be used as feedstock for biodiesel production.
Since "waste" oil is a feedstock to reduce emissions from vehicles on the road, this strategic investment also supports Greenergy's commitment to decarbonize transportation and meet the future demand for advanced biofuels.
Christian Flach, CEO of Greenergy said, "As a company focused on the energy transition, we are always looking at how we can drive carbon emission reductions for road transport. This investment fits that bill.
"Demand for advanced biofuels is expected to increase in the future, driven in part by blend mandates established in Europe to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector. With this investment, the company hopes to meet this growing demand.
