What the papers say - FINANCIAL TIMES

News stand

The UK's first large 'biodiesel' plant has started commercial production of environmentally friendly fuel from animal fat and used cooking oil. This biodiesel mix will be sent from Motherwell, central Scotland to refineries at Grangemouth and Teesside to be mixed with mineral diesel. Made of 5% biodiesel and 95% mineral diesel, the bio-plus fuel requires no change to vehicle engines.

The £15M plant, built by Argent Energy, will be able to produce 50,000t a year.
