August 05, 2019 [Tank News International] – Australia-based Just Biodiesel has officially opened its biodiesel facility in Barnawartha, Victoria. The plant has the capacity to manufacture 55 million litres of biodiesel annually from tallow and used cooking oil.
“Viva Energy is a supporter of alternate energy sources and are proud to have partnered with Just Biodiesel to bring this product to market,” said Viva Energy. “We now have the ability to blend biodiesel at our Newport terminal for our customers.”
The formation of Just Biodiesel Pty Ltd was finalised in December 2018. This followed the purchase of the Barnawatha biodiesel plant from the receiver, Korda Mentha, in May 2018. The plant was formerly owned by Australian Renewable Fuels(ARF) and Biodiesel Producers Pty Ltd (BPL).
“Going forward we will be supplying the Australian market with B-5 and B-20 via our distribution partners Refuelling Solutions & Viva Energy Australia,” states Just Biodiesel. “In addition we will be exporting B-100 to customers in California and the EU, starting in 2nd half of 2019. We have an integrated feedstock supply strategy for Tallow and Used Cooking Oil (UCO).”
