French oilseed crusher Avril has put into operation the country’s first biofuel plant, which will only produce biodiesel, reports UkrAgroConsult.
Biodiesel is usually blended with conventional fuels, but the company stresses that using “pure” biodiesel will cause lesser damage to the environment. It is added that Oleo 100 biofuel will only be made of rapeseed grown in France.
At the first stage, Avril is planning to annually produce a few thousand tons of this fuel. At the same time, total biofuel output in France approximates 1.5-1.6 MMT a year.
