BORKEN, GERMANY: At Petrotec’s biodiesel production plant in Sudlohn-Oeding, a fire broke out on Sunday morning in a side production line of its biodiesel production process. The local fire brigades were able to quickly extinguish the fire. The main biodiesel production line has not been damaged and there was no production halt of this line.

Petrotec informed that biodiesel production throughput might be reduced at approximately 5 per cent for up to six weeks. The management however estimates that the incident will most probably have no impact on the outlook it has provided in the Q2 report published by the company.
