Greenergy, a UK supplier of transportation fuels, has reached an agreement with Oiltanking to purchase an idle biodiesel manufacturing facility located at Oiltanking’s site in Amsterdam. The acquisition of a third biodiesel plant will allow Greenergy to meet growing demand for waste-based biofuel in the UK and Europe.
Jan Willem van Velzen, Managing Director from Oiltanking Amsterdam B.V. commented: “Oiltanking has successfully found an experienced new owner for the biodiesel facility. Oiltanking will also be investing into its own infrastructure in order to accommodate Greenergy’s logistical needs. As Greenergy’s logistical partner we are proud to become an integral part of this green sustainable supply chain.”
The Amsterdam biodiesel manufacturing facility was built in 2010 to process vegetable oils but was never commissioned. Greenergy plans to carry out works over the next year to convert the facility to process waste oils rather than vegetable oils and then to add further production capacity. Under a long-term agreement, Oiltanking will provide Greenergy with storage facilities for raw materials and finished biodiesel, as well as a range of support services.
