The Austrian company known to the public just days ago as BDI-BioDiesel International AG has changed its name, dropping biodiesel for bioenergy, in "order to reflect the broader strategic focus of the company on the 'waste-to biofuels' field," BDI-BioEnergy International stated in a July 1 release.

Starting as specialists in biodiesel plant manufacturing and process technology back in 1996, over the years the company has continued to update its biodiesel product portfolio with such technologies as the RetroFit program, an optimization package; RepCat, a biodiesel process for converting very high free fatty acid content feedstock; and more.

This year BDI began to supply biogas technology, so-called ENBAFERM Multi-Feedstock BioGas, to industrial users. Also this year BDI came out with BioCrack technology to enable refineries to include up to 20 percent biomass content in fuel during the refining process itself, by making use of crude oil refining byproducts.

Wilhelm Hammer, CEO, said, "The new name enables the company and its purpose to be clearly identified. Since BDI is a brand that is respected all over the world, it continues to be included in the name as well."
