France -Restart of Total plant -August 05, 2015

A strike at the La Mede Total plant (see our June Newsletter) has come to an end. The oil company plans to convert the unprofitable plant near Marseille to process biofuels, part of a plan that will also reconfigure its Donges refinery on the Atlantic coast. Under its plans for refining unveiled in April, Total will invest 200 million euro at La Mede for a biorefinery that will process 500,000 metric tons of fuel annually. The company has said that processing of crude oil will stop at the end of 2016 and that it will cut 180 jobs at the site without firing any workers.
