 BPТs planned biofuels refinery in Hull will be commissioned later this year, said executive director Byron Grote.

BP is developing a bio-refinery in the north eastern English city to produce ethanol through its Vivergo Fuels venture with DuPont and British Sugar. "The Hull ethanol facility will be commissioned later this year," said Grote, who was addressing a shareholder question at BP's annual general meeting.

BP has said Vivergo could supply over 30% of UK ethanol requirements under its Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation.
