Greenergy, Europe’s largest producer of biodiesel from waste oils, has announced it is increasing production at its Amsterdam biodiesel manufacturing plant by more than 25%.

Port of Amsterdam wants to be a frontrunner in the transition towards a sustainable society. This investment underlines the strong position of the Port of Amsterdam in the production, storage and trade of advanced biofuels.”
