The Brantner Group will be investing in the expansion of the biodiesel plant in the first half of 2016. This expansion will enable considerably higher production capacity in the future. In figures this means an increase from what is currently around 12,000 tonnes to around 23,000 tonnes of biodiesel per year.
"This investment is a clear sign of Brantner's commitment to the sustainable and long-term production of biodiesel at the Mureck location," says Bernd Brantner, Managing Director of the Brantner Group.
Ölwert, a Brantner Group company, is one of the largest collectors and recyclers of waste cooking oil and has been using it to produce quality-assured biodiesel at the location in Mureck, Styria, since 2014. Besides Austria, Ölwert also works in Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia.
