Makeen Energy, BB Bioenergi to build bio-LNG plant in Denmark

Denmark-based Makeen Energy and compatriot BB Bioenergi have signed a deal to build a biogas liquefaction (bio-LNG) facility in the northern part of the country.

According to a joint statement issued on Wednesday, the facility will be added to BB Bioenergi’s existing biogas plant to convert the biogas to liquid form for transport and industry.

“By integrating Makeen Energy’s technology for liquefaction of biogas into their biogas plant in North Denmark, BB Bioenergi will offer an easily transportable and CO2-reducing alternative to diesel and other fossil fuels to its customers,” the statement said.

BB Bioenergi plans to partly power the liquefaction process by energy that the plant itself generates from waste materials from the production of biogas by putting it through a pyrolysis facility on-site.

Aside from the liquefaction of biogas, BB Bioenergi also aims to collect and liquefy the CO2 from the biogas plant.

Following completion of the plant in the second half of 2024, it will produce up to 60 tonnes of liquefied biogas daily, the statement said.

The initiation of the project is currently awaiting approval from local authorities, the partners said.

In November last year, Makeen Energy and Nature Energy have started building what they say is the first biogas liquefaction plant in Denmark.

The plant will have the capacity to produce 20,000 tonnes of bio-LNG per year, but there are plans to boost the production up to 120,000 tonnes per year.
