This article reveals the plans of De Beers of South Africa to produce a large volume of biodiesel. The biodiesel will be made at Naboomspruit, which already processes 10 million gallons/year, based on sunflower seed oil. De Beers Fuel has signed an agreement with U.S. concern Green Star Products Inc. (GSPI) to supply 90 biodiesel reactors over the next 18 months, each capable of producing 10 million gallons/year. According to GSPI, algae is the only worldwide feedstock capable of replacing crude oil.
