Biodiesel factory Amsterdam (Greenmills) in operation
Solarix’ management assignment of the construction of the biodiesel factory has come to a good end. The construction is realized within the planed time schedule. At the end of the year it is expected that the factory will run on full capacity.
Last year around this time the foundation works started. Yet, one year later, the factory is ready and the first biodiesel is produced. The official name of the Factory is BDA, Bio Diesel Amsterdam. BDA is part of the Greenmills project.
BDA produces 100.000 ton 2nd generation FAME/biodiesel (EN 14214) per year from waste streams. Worldwide an unique factory with a very high efficiency where waste streams from the process are minimized and converted into high-grade end products.
For example the full heat capacity needed by the biodiesel factory and the accompanying tank farm (Tank storage Amsterdam, 100,000 m3) is generated from a waste stream. The
used Potassium is converted to Potassium Phosphate, a product that can be used as fertiliser.
Furthermore, very inferior fats can be upgraded in the build in purifying installation, before entering the actual biodiesel process.
Greenmills is a combination of a large biogas plant, a biodiesel factory and a large tank storage facility. Greenmills processes of all sorts of organic waste at the same time to useful sustainable products, such as green electricity, biogas, heat, compost and bio diesel. All these products are produced within the highest quality standards.
The Greenmills project is an example of the Eco Energy Concept as marketed by Solarix. Our practical experience around the world made that we already identified several locations for replicating this concept. At this moment, the Eco Energy Concept is already leading Solarix to new potential green waste processing facilities throughout the world.
