Two British Biodiesel Makers Partner, Boost UK Production by 120M Liters

1 April 2005

Reuters. Two UK biofuel makers are partnering in a joint venture that will increase UK manufacturing capacity for biodiesel by some 120 million liters per year (equivalent to more than 2,000 barrels per day).

Global Commodities UK will work with Rix Biodiesel to adapt an existing Rix vegetable oil processing plant at Hull in northeast England to produce more than 120 million litres a year. The converted plant should be operational in about three months.

Rix and Global Commodities both currently market B5 (5% biodiesel) blends in the UK.

Global Commodities also has plans to build a separate facility to produce biodiesel from rapeseed. The 180 million-liter plant (approximately 3,100 barrels per day), to be based at Lowestoft in eastern England, is expected to be up and running in 2006.
