Dutch firm Nordsol has reached a new production milestone at its bio-LNG plant in Amsterdam Westpoort following the start of commercial operations last year.
In January, the plant reached a milestone of a quarter of a million kilograms of produced bio-LNG.
This week, the facility will accomplish two new milestones.
“Today, the 2000th ton of bio-LNG will be delivered to one of Shell’s fuel stations in the Netherlands,” Nordsol said on Wednesday.
This amount of bio-LNG used by trucks means that the emission of about 9500 tons of fossil CO2 had been prevented, Nordsol claims.
In addition to bio-LNG, the 2000th ton of liquid bio-CO2 would be collected at the plant on Thursday as well, according to the LNG tech firm.
Earlier this year, Shell started offering bio-LNG blended with “regular LNG” to all of its customers in the Netherlands.
Shell has a large network of LNG filling stations in the Netherlands, Germany, and in other European countries.
Besides this bio-LNG plant, Nordsol is also working on other facilities and recently took a final investment decision on the bio-LNG plant in Wilp along with its partners Titan and Attero.
Unlike the bio-LNG plant in Amsterdam Westpoort, this new facility will provide bio-LNG for the shipping sector.
