Nordsol and DBG Bio Energy have signed an agreement to collaborate on a new bio-LNG installation in the Netherlands.
The installation will be established and owned by DBG while Nordsol will supply the bio-LNG installation and provide its expertise on bio-LNG permitting processes and the bio-LNG and bioCO2 supply chain, and process calculations to support DBG in developing the project.
The installation will be able to produce around 15 kilotons of bio-LNG per year, allowing for more than 60 million kilometres of CO2-neutral driving.
Bio-LNG is a renewable replacement for LNG. In the coming years, bio-LNG will play an essential role in decarbonising heavy-duty road and water transport, said the companies, as electrification of large trucks and ships is very challenging, and bio-LNG is available today.
DBG is using a patented process to convert cellulose-containing industrial waste streams into biogas. Norsdol’s iLNG technology can process this biogas into bio-LNG in an energy-efficient way. This technology can also provide additional value through the capture and liquefaction of bioCO2 from the biogas to replace fossil CO2.
“This is an important development for us and we are looking forward to working closely with our partners at Nordsol,” said Berkay Güres, managing director of DBG.
“DBG Bio Energy is excited about the environmentally beneficial role that it can play in decarbonising transport through its production of green bio-LNG.”
Jerom van Roosmalen, CEO of Nordsol, commented: “Nordsol is about to start production of the first bio-LNG in the Netherlands. The collaboration with DBG Bio Energy is an important next step in our mission to making bio-LNG a mainstream biofuel for heavy-duty road and water transport.”
