Even some oil-rich nations are getting on the biodiesel bandwagon. Check out this article in the Brunei Times. Apparently, the sultanate on the coast of Borneo in the South China Sea has inked an agreement with a private company to build two biodiesel and glycerine production facilities.
The facilities can produce 100,000 metric tonnes of biodiesel per annum in Phase 1 and 400,000 metric tonnes per annum in Phase 2. The entire project costs US$263 million
The plants will produce biodiesel from the leftovers from slaughterhouses and cooking oil. By the way, Brunei exports about $4.5 BILLION in petroleum products each year.
