Nordsol, Titan, Attero kick off construction of Dutch bio-LNG plant

Dutch tech firm Nordsol and its partners Titan and Attero have recently started building a new bio-LNG plant in Wilp.

Nordsol revealed the launch of groundwork at the Wilp site for the FirstBio2Shipping project in a social media post on Thursday, but it did not provide any additional information.

The project is supported by the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA).

In November last year, the three firms took a final investment decision to build the LNG plant.

The FirstBio2Shipping project, which received 4.3 million euros ($4.6 million) from the EU, is expected to start delivering bio-LNG in early 2024.

Attero will process domestic biowaste into 6 million Nm3 of biogas per year, while Nordsol and Attero will jointly produce 2,400 tons/year of bio-LNG and 5,000 tons/year liquid bio-CO2 from this biogas using Nordsol’s patented iLNG technology.

Also, Titan, the exclusive long-term off-taker, will supply the bio-LNG to the maritime industry to substitute fossil fuels.

This facility will not be the first bio-LNG facility in the Netherlands as Nordsol already operates the bio-LNG plant in Amsterdam Westpoort.

However, it will be the first bio-LNG plant for shipping as the Amsterdam Westpoort facility provides fuel for the transport sector.

Besides these facilities, Titan also revealed plans for a large bio-LNG plant in the Amsterdam port.
