Visiting a Biodiesel Plant

Wednesday was another of our excursion days. On today’s agenda was first a visit to a biodiesel plant. This plant, located in Longyan, brings in waste cooking oil from restaurants, and converts it into biodiesel. The plant converts approximately 70,000 tons per of waste oil into biodiesel. We were shown around by Mr. Huodong Ye, the chairman of the company. We had to travel about 2-1/2 hours to get to the plant, which was located in the hills on the mainland.
