The excellent cooperation of the project teams of Crimson and BDI led to a smooth, fast workflow resulting in a successful commissioning of our newly expanded BioDiesel plant. We are very pleased that Crimson will increase its already significant role in helping California achieve it’s carbon reduction goals, which interestingly was initiated by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger who is also from Styria, Austria, said Harry Simpson, CEO, Crimson Renewable Energy.
According to a statement, Crimson Renewable Energy is now able to triple its biodiesel production, raise its feedstock flexibility and establish itself as a leading producer of next-generation biofuels in the United States thanks to this plant optimization and upgrade.
In this project, BDI has played a key role in the development of a tailor-made RetroFit solution for the extended use of waste materials, while at the same time increasing product quality.
With this project, BDI is able to strengthen its presence in the US biodiesel market. Our internationally successful RetroFit programme helped our customer to update its existing plant with the latest technology. With waste-based biodiesel production, they will be able to make an important contribution to California‘s environmental targets, said Dr Edgar Ahn, Chief Science Officer at BDI.
