Celtic Bio Diesel

This Company was established to provide Pembrokeshire with a renewable and sustainable fuel source as an alternative to mineral diesel – the product designation being Bio-Diesel. In the first stage the fuel will be produced from waste vegetable oil collected by the company from Pembrokeshire’s catering establishments and then refined into Bio-diesel to EN14214 (the European quality standard). The concept is to fuel the local council's vehicles and those of its contractors with what was previously a difficult and expensive to dispose of waste product. The company's objectives are in the first instance to produce up to 10,000 litres per week of Bio-diesel from waste vegetable oil collected within Pembrokeshire. The refinery will have a maximum capacity of 15,000 litres per week. With the costs of mineral diesel unlikely to reduce it is anticipated that demand would increase beyond the available supplies of waste oil and the capacity of the small scale refinery. In view of the foregoing, plans will be laid for the establishment of a refinery capable of some five million litres per annum as an absolute medium term objective. This refinery would be supplied by a combination of locally collected and bought in waste oil as well as locally grown Rapeseed, with priority given to the locally produced raw material.
