(Presidencia de la República)
Tapachula, Chiapas - During his tour of the state of Chiapas, President Felipe Calderón led the inauguration of the Biodiesel Plant.

This new plant "is proof of Mexicans’ commitment in the fight against climate change,” declared the President.

He added that biofuels are made from plants that are not fuel substitutes and that Chiapas will be the "main biofuel producing state and transform agricultural products into clean fuel."

The Center for Biodiesel Research and Production Technology is located in Polygon 1 of the Puerto Chiapas Industrial Park.

On 25 February, 2009, an agreement was signed between the Government of the State of Chiapas and the Colombian Corporation of Agricultural Research (CORPOICA), the technical arm of the Columbian Ministry of Agriculture.

This plant forms part of the Center for Biodiesel Research and Production Technology, which will have production modules with various technologies. The biodiesel will be produced with jatropha curcas, palm and recycled oil.

It has an initial production capacity of 20,000 liters a day (British) with a versatility of expansion of up to 10 times its initial capacity. It is an environmentally friendly plant and works by modifying the heating process through solar energy, with Mexican technology.
