Nordsol is finalizing works on the first bio-LNG facility in the Netherlands which will mainly supply fuel for vehicles.
“We are in the final phase of commissioning the first bio-LNG installation in the Netherlands,” Nordsol said in a short update on Tuesday.
To remind, Nordsol has teamed up with Shell and Renewi on the facility located in Amsterdam Westpoort. 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 would 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.
Additional bio-LNG projects
This is not the only bio-LNG facility the Dutch developer is working on.
The firm recently 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.
Also, Nordsol would supply its patented technology called iLNG to another Dutch bio-LNG project which recently received funds from the European Commission.
Dutch waste management firm Attero and Bio-LNG Hub Wilp would develop the project named FirstBio2Shipping.
Nordsol plans to produce in total 30,000 tons of bio-LNG per year by 2025.
