BDI's RepCAT technology puts an end to mad cow disease

Styrian plant manufacturer and technology developer BDI-BioEnergy International receives approval from the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) for its innovative RepCAT process for processing contaminated animal fat for Europe.

  • The approval means that high-risk animal fat can not only be disposed of but also safely recycled, thus making an important contribution to the circular economy.
  • The use of a catalyst enables high raw material economy and low operating costs.
  • Three plants using this technology are currently being realized and will be completed successively by mid-2022.

BDI receives Living Standards Award

Standards for algae products for the first time

The Styrian plant manufacturer BDI-BioEnergy International has specialized in the development of resource-saving technologies. The idea of using algae in the industry is increasingly occupying the branch. The problem is that the use of algae in industry requires the constant production of high-quality raw materials from algae regardless of location.

BDI has now succeeded in developing its own algae cultivation system that guarantees precisely these conditions. To ensure that this process can be applied internationally, the Raaba-Grambach-based company is currently working at European level on those standards that will in future ensure quality control for the customer with regard to the purity or concentration of the algae oil.

Austrian Standards has awarded BDI-BioEnergy the Living Standards Award for its participation in the development of standards for the uniform use of algae in industry.

The feedstock challenge

With the Fit-for-55 package, the European Commission has set an ambitious goal in the direction of climate protection and to meet the target of “net zero” CO2 emissions in 2050.

It remains therefore increasingly important to make the most effective and efficient switch to climate-neutral propulsion and fuel systems in the individual transport sectors.
