Independent bulk liquid storage company TEPSA Tarragona (TEPSA) has been given approval to import animal by-products for biofuels production, Biofuels International reported on 22 October.
Following authorisation from Spain’s Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, TEPSA can now import liquid animal by-products from outside the EU directly through the Dependent Inspection Centre at the Port of Tarragona, according to the report.
Before gaining authorisation, these products could only be imported after the completion of a number of bureaucratic processes, Biofuels International wrote.
To qualify for the authorisation, TEPSA had to show that it had the appropriate infrastructure for the storage, inspection and traceability of the products.
Wholly-owned by RUBIS Terminal, TEPSA is a joint venture between RUBIS and I SQUARED CAPITAL.
