As explained, the Dutch company will build the LBM plant able to operate 200,000 tonnes of LBM per year. The plant will be built at its strategic location in the Port of Amsterdam allowing supply to ships and trucks.
Important milestones for the project are the two recent contract signings with biogas producer BioValue for the off-take of all on-site produced biogas, and with Linde Engineering to perform the basic engineering.
BioValue, one of the largest biogas suppliers in the Netherlands, will supply a significant part of the biogas required for the total LBM production.
For this, BioValue will construct a new biogas plant, adjacent to the bio-LNG plant. The remaining biogas will be sourced from other production installations throughout Europe that are connected to the existing gas grid.
The project aligns well with EU regulations such as those proposed in the Fit-For-55 package and the recently published RePowerEU plans.
Importantly, the project will only source biogas from sustainable feedstocks that are compliant with the latest EU Renewable Energy Directive and are International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) certified.
Other sustainable integrations in the plant include the capturing and utilization of the biogenic CO2 side stream and the hydrogen-ready design. This enables future production of e-methane where the biogenic CO2 is combined with green hydrogen. For this, a connection to the hydrogen backbone planned in the Port of Amsterdam is envisaged.
