RenEco, Nordsol plan to launch UK bio-LNG plant in Q1 2024

UK’s RenEco and Dutch tech firm Nordsol are planning to launch what they say is Britain’s first bio-LNG production plant in the first quarter of 2024.

Located in proximity to Rushden and under RenEco’s ownership, this plant represents an expansion of their current organic waste processing that focuses on biogas production and electricity generation, the two firms said in a joint statement.

Leveraging Nordsol’s technology, RenEco will convert biogas into bio-LNG (liquefied biomethane), with production expected to start in the first quarter of 2024, they said.

“Anticipated to yield 3.4 kilotons of bio-LNG annually, the new bio-LNG facility will fuel over 8 million miles (13 million kilometers) of fossil-free road transport for heavy-duty trucks,” the statement said.

RenEco’s initiative involves the collection of organic waste from all parts of the food supply chain, its conversion into biogas and organic fertilizers via anaerobic digestion, and the transformation of biogas into bio-LNG and biogenic CO2.

While the biogenic CO2 displaces fossil CO2 in various industries, RenEco’s fleet, along with their customer’s fleets, will run on bio-LNG creating a circular supply chain, the statement said.

“The Rushden facility is the inaugural step in a broader strategy to establish multiple bio-LNG plants across the UK, underscoring Nordsol’s dedicated organizational support for the transition from biogas to bio-LNG in the UK,” they said.

Nordsol already operates the bio-LNG plant in Amsterdam Westpoort.

Nordsol and its partners Shell and Renewi officially launched the first Dutch bio-LNG plant on October 18, 2021, followed by the start of commercial operations later the same month.

Ealrier this year, the Dutch firm and its partners Titan and Attero started building a new bio-LNG plant in Wilp.

This will be the first Dutch bio-LNG plant for shipping as the first facility produces bio-LNG for the road transport sector.
