Malaga, Spain (PortSEurope) September 26, 2020 – Malaga port as started a new intermodal transport operation corresponding to the import of 4,000 tons of used oil, by sea, and its transfer by rail to the facilities of Linares Biodiesel Technology located in Jaén for its conversion into biofuel. Once the process is finished, the liquid bulk will be transferred again to the port, to be
exported by ship from the facilities of the Oil Distribution Terminal (ODT), which manages this import and export procedure from Pier 9. This activity reveals the commitment to attract new traffic with a permanent vocation and the added value of sustainability. The import operation already carried out successfully on August 26 and September 4, now adds transfer of the transformed merchandise from Jaén to Malaga, which will be shipped to the European market. The proposal of Autoridad Portuaria de Málaga (APM – Port Authority of Málaga) to modify the transport schedule of the merchandise by rail was approved by ADIF. The operation that took place on September 23 and 24, was brought forward, with the aim of reducing the impact of port activity in the city. This new traffic will boost the economy of the port hinterland, contributing to the development of the region and considering Malaga as a strategic enclave to promote the internationalization of Andalusian companies.
