Portugal’s first biodiesel plant

Financement for the construction of Portugal’s first biodiesel plant has been approved. Nutasa’s 100,000 mt/year plant is due on stream in July 2004 at Alhandra. Considering that the plant will make a decisive contribution to Portugal’s complaince with EU directives on emissions reduction, a EUR 12.5 M subsidy was advanced under the government’s Economic Operational Programme.
