The market for energy from renewable sources in Europe is rising, also as a result of the Renewable Energy Directive II of the European Union. In total 16 new tanks with a combined capacity of 64.000 cbm will be built at Vopak Terminal Vlaardingen. The renewable feedstocks that can be stored in the new tanks are waste materials, such as used cooking oil and tallow.
Vopak Terminal Vlaardingen already has extensive experience in storing these types of products. The terminal is strategically located within the Port of Rotterdam and is well connected for logistics by vessels, barges, trucks and trains.
