Nordsol, DBG to build new Dutch bio-LNG plant

Dutch firm Nordsol has joined forces with compatriot DBG Bio Energy to build a new bio-LNG facility in the country.

DBG will establish and own the facility while Nordsol will supply the bio-LNG installation and provide their expertise on permitting processes, according to a statement released on Wednesday.

In addition, Nordsol said it would also provide the bio-LNG and bio-CO2 supply chain and process calculations to support DBG in the development of this project.

The planned installation would produce about 15 kton bio-LNG per year. This allows for more than 60 million kilometers of carbon-neutral driving, Nordsol said.

In coming years, bio-LNG will play an “essential role” in decarbonizing heavy-duty road and water transport, as electrification of large trucks and ships is very challenging, the firm said.

DBG is using a patented process to convert cellulose-containing industrial waste streams into biogas.

Nordsol’s iLNG technology can process this biogas into bio-LNG but it can also provide additional value through capture and liquefaction of bio-CO2 from the biogas, the firm said.

The company is already building the first bio-LNG facility in the Netherlands along with partners Shell and Renewi.

Located in Amsterdam Westpoort, the installation will produce about 3.4 kilotons of bio-LNG per year, allowing more than 13 million kilometers of carbon-neutral driving, Nordsol says.
