Dutch king to open Nordsol’s bio-LNG plant

The Netherlands’ King Willem-Alexander will next week open Nordsol’s bio-LNG plant in Amsterdam Westpoort, the country’s first such facility.

The opening ceremony will take place on October 14, according to Nordsol.

To remind, Nordsol said in August it was finalizing works on the bio-LNG facility which would mainly supply fuel for vehicles.

Nordsol has teamed up with Shell and Renewi on the facility. The total investment would reach about 9 million euros ($10.5 million), Nordsol has previously said.

Renewi collects organic waste throughout the Netherlands, such as expired products, processes this waste and converts it into biogas during its fermentation.

The installation will then processes this biogas into bio-LNG while Shell will sell the fuel via its LNG filling stations.

In addition, the facility will also liquefy bio-CO2 captured from the biogas for onward distribution to greenhouses and the food industry.

Once complete, the installation will produce about 3.4 kilotons of bio-LNG per year, allowing more than 13 million kilometers of carbon-neutral driving, according to Nordsol.
