Renewi, a leading waste-to-product company, and Swedish energy company Vattenfall have announced a new partnership.
Vattenfall will purchase more than 7.5 million m3 of green gas annually from Renewi. The green gas, which is made from food waste, will be added to the Dutch gas grid, where it can combine with natural gas for enhanced sustainability.
The green gas for Vattenfall is produced in a state-of-the-art Renewi Organics plant in Amsterdam, according to the company. The food waste is sourced from restaurants, canteens and expired products from supermarkets.
The production and use of green gas helps to achieve the climate goals in the field of CO2 reduction and helps the Netherlands to become less dependent on natural gas imports, added Renewi.
One of the climate goals is to produce 2 billion m3 of green gas annually in the Netherlands by 2030. The Netherlands currently produces approximately 250 million m3 of green gas.
Cindy Kroon, Vattenfall's customer director for the Dutch market, said: "Green gas works just as well as natural gas, whether we use it for heating, showering or cooking. By using more green gas, we make our lives at home a little more sustainable. In this way, we help society move forward and work towards freedom from fossil fuels."
Marc den Hartog, director of Renewi Commercial Waste Netherlands, commented: “By converting waste streams into new, more sustainable raw materials, we are working towards a cleaner world. The collaboration with Vattenfall is a great example of getting as much value as possible from waste and making a substantial contribution to the circular economy. The supply of green gas contributes to achieving the climate objective; The Netherlands will be climate neutral by 2050".
Renewi is expected to start supplying green gas in the spring of 2024.
