Old fat to be turned into bio diesal

The biggest biofuel refinery in Europe is to be built in Amsterdam. From 2009, some 200 million litres of biodiesel will be produced in the capital from old frying fat.

Fruit and vegetable waste will turned into 25 million cubic metres of biogas. The plant is being built by waste processor Greenmills and will cost €50m. The company will collect old fat from McDonald’s, Febo and other fastfood restaurants to turn into biofuel. From January 2007 new legislation stipulates that biofuel must be added to all traditional diesel.
