Fox Petroli, an Italian biodiesel producer, has optimised and expanded the production process at its Vasta plant by investing in Progea Movicon SCADA. The company chose this system because it was quick to develop, offered great flexibility, and had a proven track record of reliability. The investment is part of the company's focus on developing new forms of fuel that provide greater protection to the environment.
