Last week, China Clean Energy Inc., announced
a dramatic increase in its biodiesel
production capaticy, thanks to an upgrade in its Fuqing City plant. Before the $500,000 investment, the plant could make 1.4 million gallons a year. Now it is capable of three million. That's less than a quarter of a gallon per person in China each year. Still, China Clean Energy was able to double biodiesel production capacity in a little over four months, and I'm sure they're looking to grow. China Clean Energy uses waste grease and "certain vegetable oils" to make biodiesel. The company also "has annualized capacity to produce 18,000 tons of specialty chemicals made from renewable resources."
