German duo to build bio-LNG plant

Germany’s EnviTec Biogas is joining forces with compatriot Balance Erneuerbare Energien, a unit of VNG, to build a bio-LNG plant to cater to a growing demand for the fuel in the country.

The two plant operators would build the new facility as part of a joint venture, according to a statement by EnviTec Biogas on Monday.

However, the joint venture is subject to approval by the local authorities, it said.

EnviTec Biogas did not reveal any additional details only saying “further information can be announced at a later date.”

EnviTec says it operates 75 plants, making it one of the largest biogas producers in Germany.

The firm’s unit EnviTec Bioenergie Gustrow previously revealed plans to convert its facility in Gustrow to be able to produce bio-LNG as it now only makes biomethane.

The firm has also signed a deal with Liqvis, a unit of energy firm Uniper. Liqvis said its filling stations would start receiving bio-LNG from the plant in October 2022 for onward distribution to the heavy goods vehicle sector in Germany.

In addition, Germany’s Liquind, now owned by Vitol, has also signed a deal with EnviTec Biogas to buy bio-LNG from the latter’s plant in Gustrow.

Following completion in autumn 2022, Liquind would take bio-LNG at the plant and distribute it to its network of truck filling stations across Germany.
