Biodiesel Ireland are the largest supplier of Biodiesel to the Irish market. The Biodiesel is offered as a part of the standard EN590 Diesel offering at the pump. Biodiesel Production Ireland Ltd. were awarded a duty derogation on biofuel from the Irish Government and the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources.
There were over 100 Applicants for the MOTR scheme (Mineral Oil Tax Relief Scheme). These awards were to satisfy the EU Transport Fuel Directive which mandated that all transport fuel must contain 5% Biofuel.
Since 2006 through a joint venture with Topaz Energy (owners of Shell and Statoil in Ireland) we have blended over 2 billion litres of Diesel with our Biofuel at a 5% blend, which is now the standard Diesel offering in Ireland. We supplied approximately 70%-80% (depending on rolling contracts) of retail forecourts on the Island of Ireland.
