Cargill completes new advanced biodiesel plant

In Belgium, Cargill completed its first state-of-the-art advanced biodiesel plant in Ghent, Belgium which converts waste oils and residues into renewable fuel. The advanced biodiesel produced at the facility will be used by the maritime and trucking sectors.

The groundbreaking project is the one of the largest waste-to-biofuel facility in Europe and Cargill’s first, employing industry-leading technology to convert all types of liquid waste oils and fats, including used cooking oils, tallow and residues from edible oil production, into advanced biodiesel. In doing so, Cargill supports the circular economy, giving new purpose to products that previously were disposed of, or relegated to low-value applications.
