Company profile

Through its participation in Biodiesel Holding, founded in 1995 by Lode Speleers, Gimv invests in Bioro, a joint venture of Biodiesel Holding with the international agricultural products group Cargill and Vanden Avenne. Bioro constructed a brand-new 200,000 tonnes a year biodiesel plant in the port of Ghent, thus contributing to Belgium’s future independence of the oil producing countries, as well as assuring a better environment and more employment in both the production and the agricultural branch. The Belgian government showed to have faith in Bioro when allocating the fuel delivery quota in December 2006. The corporation obtained the largest quota of the four authorized biofuel producers in Belgium.
