Daka amba, a cooperative company primarily owned by Danish cooperative slaughterhouses, plans to build a DKK 180 m (USD 30.6 m) biodiesel plant at Løsning, Jutland. The new plant is scheduled to be completed in 2007, and will initially have a production capacity of 50,000 tons biodiesel annually, with the scope to double that capacity. The biodiesel business area will be placed in a new company, Daka Biodiesel amba, into which Germany's Saria Bio-Industries is entering as a minority shareholder.

Henrik Holst-Pedersen, managing director of Daka, says he hopes that Danish politicians will ease Danish duties on biodiesel and get the framework conditions in Denmark and the EU on the same level: "We think appropriate sales conditions in Denmark will be implemented. For a period we are however prepared to sell our biodiesel in other EU countries, where duties have been eased."

The biodiesel plant will be a second generation plant using by-products from slaughterhouses which do not form part of the food chain. Daka expects to use animal fat for biodiesel production. Saria Bio-Industries, Daka's German partner, has considerable experience with biodiesel production based on animal fat.

The news was reported by financial daily newspaper Børsen.

Daka has two other business units: Daka Bio-industries and Daka Proteins. The cooperative company's main task is to dispose of by-products from slaughterhouses and the meat industry.
