Meroco plans to build bio-diesel plant

THE MEROCO company will build a plant to produce bio-diesel fuel by the end of 2007 in Leopoldov in western Slovakia. The plant will have a daily capacity of 300 tons of bio-diesel (methylester vegetable oil), and an annual maximum of 100,000 tons.

The production line will process 800 tons of colza (rapeseed) a day. The production process consists of two independent processes: the pressing of colza oil seeds, and the production of colza methylester or other vegetable oils.

Meroco is a joint venture between Slovakia's dominant refinery, the Hungarian-owned Slovnaft, and the US-based Envien Group.
