Cargill Invests in German Biodiesel Facility

[] Cargill has announced its intention to invest in a new 200,000 tons biodiesel facility in Mainz, Germany. The facility will complement Cargill’s existing oilseed crushing and refining operations in the region and is expected to commence production in Q3 2006. Jack van den Hoek, General Manager, Biodiesel and Biomass, Cargill Europe says that Mainz is ideally situated for the production and supply of biodiesel – both in terms of its geographical location and in the availability of raw materials such as rapeseed oil and other vegetable oils which can be supplied via the Rhine. Cargill already has a number of investments and joint ventures for biodiesel and bioethanol production in the United States, Poland and Germany including a biodiesel joint venture with Agravis Raiffeisen AG in Wittenberge, Germany.
