Last month the newly formed Green Fu­els NZ Lim­ited com­pleted the pur­chase of Biodiesel New Zealand Ltd’s (BDNZ) Christchurch biodiesel pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties from Solid En­ergy.

Green Fu­els NZ Lim­ited has been es­tab­lished by two former BDNZ em­ploy­ees, Martin John­son and Karl Hat­ton. John­son was re­cently the fuel busi­ness man­ager while Hat­ton was the pro­duc­tion man­ager.

“Both Karl and I are passionate about mak­ing and sup­ply­ing en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly fu­els and - when the op­por­tu­nity came to pur­chase the busi­ness - both of us jumped for it,” ex­plains John­son.

Green Fu­els NZ Ltd will con­tinue to pro­duce and mar­ket Bio­gold™ branded biodiesel from re­cy­cled veg­etable oil. Cur­rent pro­duc­tion is around 600,000 litres per an­num, with po­ten­tial ca­pac­ity at the plant for 4m litres. Cus­tomers in­clude Stark Bros, Leop­ard Coach­lines, Ful­ton Ho­gan, City Care, Okains Bay Long­line, Ap­par­el­mas­ter and the Christchurch City Coun­cil. Hopefully they can suc­ceed where Solid En­ergy failed.
