Trio starts work on first Dutch bio-LNG facility

Renewi, Nordsol and Shell have started the construction of the first bio-LNG facility in the Netherlands as they look to boost the use of the fuel for trucks.

Located in Amsterdam Westpoort, the new facility should be operational within a year, according to bio-LNG developer Nordsol.

The installation will produce about 3.4 kilotons of bio-LNG per year, allowing more than 13 million kilometers of carbon-neutral driving, the firm said.

The three partners each fulfill a role in the new waste-to-energy chain.

Renewi collects organic waste throughout the Netherlands, such as expired products, processes this waste and converts it into biogas during its fermentation.

The Nordsol installation then processes this biogas into bio-LNG while Shell sells the fuel via its LNG filling stations.

Bio-LNG will play an important role in the coming years in making heavy road and water transport more sustainable, according to the partners.
