Zimbabwe has opened the first biodiesel plant in its territory. Considered the fifth largest one in the world, the plant was built in Transload, 15 km north of the capital Harare. The capital came from a joint venture of Zimbabwean and South-Korean companies and is expected to produce about 100 million liters of biodiesel per year from wheat, soy and sun-flower seeds.

It is expected that this plant will help the country save $80 million in imported oil. Something very necessary for a country which is currently under international sanctions against president Robert Mugabe.
