Cargill: decarbonising transportation

Published: 22/10/2020

In a move to further strengthen its commitment to fight climate change and deliver a more circular economy, Cargill announced today that it is constructing a multi waste- and residues-based biodiesel plant at its existing oilseeds crush and Bioro biodiesel site in Ghent, Belgium.

The €120m project helps meet renewable energy demand for the decarbonisation of the EU transport sector, while protecting natural resources.

The plant will use the very latest technology of BDI-BioEnergy International GmbH to process all types of liquid waste oils and fats, including by-products from food processing, and waste from the food industry, and non-food crops grown on marginal land.
