Egils Staris, Chair of Board, SIA Bio-Venta:

–         Location within the territory of Ventspils Free Port and the available infrastructure are some of the competitive advantages of SIA Bio-Venta, if compared to similar producers.

Selecting the correct location was essential for realisation of the biodiesel plant project — SIA Bio-Venta is in the middle of material flow from the East to Amsterdam–Rotterdam–Antwerp (ARA) ports now and thus closer to our target markets in the Baltics and Scandinavia than other biodiesel producers from the Western Europe. Access to port berths and rail and road access ensure one of the major elements in biodiesel production business, i.e. flexible logistics of materials and production.
