London, England [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Goes on Green (GoG) has applied for planning permission for the first phase of a new biodiesel facility in the North Shields region of England. GoG’s funding comes from Al Tayyar Energy, a development and investment company, headquartered in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It will be the majority investor in the project and has provided initial financing.
The new £30 million (USD$59.7 million) facility is set to manufacture 30,000 tons of biodiesel per year within 12 months of plant commissioning. The facility will utilize a multiple range of feedstocks, which include fats, greases and non-edible animal fats within a clean production environment.“By selecting a novel means of processing a wide range of feed stocks of fats and oils, we are opening up a new platform to expand biodiesel production in the UK and ultimately internationally,” said Ing Giuseppe Simeone, Chairman of GoG.
