HOUSTON, Dec. 5 -- Diester Industrie has let turnkey contracts to Technip for two biodiesel plants in France.
The plants, one in the Bassens port zone near Bordeaux and the other doubling the size of the Grand-Couronne plant near Rouen, will use the Axens process.
Capacities each will be 250,000 tonnes/year. The units are to start production at the end of 2007.
In addition to the existing plant near Rouen, Technip has built biodiesel plants for Diester at Sete and Compiegne and is building one for the company at Montoir-de-Bretagne.
