Scotland's Argent Energy commissions BDI for multifeedstock plant

By Ron Kotrba | August 26, 2015

Austria-based BDI-BioEnergy International AG announced it has been commissioned to implement the next phase of construction—installation of multifeedstock technology—at Argent Energy (U.K.) Ltd.’s 13 MMgy biodiesel plant in Motherwell, Scotland, owned by John Swire and Sons Ltd.

The projected cost to install BDI’s multifeedstock biodiesel process at Argent Energy is more than $34 million.

Last January, Argent Energy commissioned BDI to build its esterification plant that could convert materials high in free fatty acids into biodiesel.

“Once again BDI has impressed with its competence and technological plant engineering expertise,” said Markus Dielacher, BDI’s chief technology officer and board member. “We are very pleased to assist an important major customer with this globally unique and highly customized project.”

The Argent Energy plant was originally designed and built by BDI in 2005.
