Title: Biodiesel Plant at Enns
Biodiesel Enns GmbH & Co KG constructed a biodiesel facility at Ennshafen (Austria) to satisfy the increasing demand for alternative fuel. The site features high site quality from an infrastructure viewpoint. This facility will produce biodiesel from rape oil. Rape oil cannot be used for fuel; therefore it will be converted in rape oil methyl ester by a chemical process that makes it usable in engines. By the end of 2006 the biodiesel facility will start its production with an annual capacity of 110,000 tons of biodiesel and 10,000 tons of glycerin for the pharmaceutical industry. Approximately 30 jobs will be created.
