Renewi, Nordsol and Shell have started the construction of the first bio-LNG installation in Amsterdam Westpoort. The new bio-LNG installation is an extension for the current processing of, among other things, outdated products from the supermarkets.  

With an investment of several millions, the technical partner Nordsol will be the first to produce bio-LNG in the Netherlands. The development of this production location in Amsterdam Westpoort paves the way for Dutch bio-LNG.

The three initiators each fulfill a unique 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. Finally, Shell sells this bio-LNG at its LNG filling stations.

Compared to diesel, bio-LNG has lower CO2 emissions. Moreover, bio-LNG is made from organic waste and not from fossil sources. Bio-LNG will play an important role in the coming years in making heavy road and water transport more sustainable because the electrification of trucks and ships is difficult.

In the Nordsol installation, the biogas extracted from organic waste is converted into bio-LNG and liquid bio-CO2, a transparent and fair supply chain. Biogas consists of approximately 60% methane and 40% carbon dioxide (CO2). The technology makes it possible to efficiently separate pure methane from the biogas and liquefy it into bio-LNG. The CO2 by-product is reused in the market and therefore ensures an additional CO2 emission reduction. This leads to a 100% CO2 neutral fuel.

The installation will be operational within a year, as the standardized modules are produced elsewhere and connected on the Renewi site. The installation will soon produce 3.4 kilotons of bio-LNG per year. This allows more than 13 million kilometers of CO2 neutral driving. To give an idea – this is more than 370 times around the globe.

Rotterdam, November 16, 2020 – The CMA CGM Jacques Saadé, the world’s largest containership powered by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) has completed her first LNG bunkering with Total’s LNG bunker vessel, the Gas Agility, on November 13th 2020 at the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The 23,000 TEUcontainership received around 17,300 m3 of LNG, making it the largest LNG bunkering operation to ever take place.

Safe and efficient bunkering operation was performed by the Gas Agility at the Rotterdam World Gateway terminal by means of a ship-to-ship transfer, while the CMA CGM Jacques Saadé carried out cargo operations simultaneously. The supply of LNG was provided by Total Marine Fuels Global Solutions, Total’s dedicated business unit in charge of worldwide bunkering activities. Refueling took approximately 24 hours to complete.

As part of this milestone operation, the carbon footprint of the LNG delivered was further reduced with the introduction of biomethane for approximately 13% of the quantity delivered, through the Guarantee of Origin (GO) certificates mechanism. The biomethane is produced in the Schipol area in the Netherlands, mainly by organic municipal waste. 

The pioneering bunkering operation is a ground-breaking development for the global LNG market and concretely demonstrates Total and CMA CGM’s pledge to advance the use of LNG as a marine fuel, the best, immediately available solution in terms of energy transition to help reduce the environmental footprint of maritime transport. LNG makes it possible to eliminate almost all the air pollutants generated by the combustion of fossil fuels: 
•    99% of sulphur oxide emissions;
•    99% of fine particles emissions;
•    Up to 85% of nitrogen oxide emissions;

A LNG-powered vessel also emits up to 20% less CO2 than conventional fuel-powered systems. The development of bio and synthetic LNG2 will further drive forward LNG as a viable pathway to support the International Maritime Organization’s strategy on reducing GHG emissions from international shipping.

We are really proud of this landmark achievement, which is the culmination of a 3-year close collaboration between Total and CMA CGM,” said Jérôme Leprince-Ringuet, Vice President Marine Fuels at Total. “It also marks the shipping industry’s first commercial use of biomethane on this scale. Such introduction reflects Total’s ambition to get to Net Zero by 2050 and our commitment to help reduce the carbon intensity of the energy products used by our customers.” 

CMA CGM has chosen Total as part of a major industrial partnership to supply them with gas. Thereby making CMA CGM the initiator in structuring a genuine LNG field of excellence in maritime transport.” said Christine Cabau, CMA CGM Executive Vice President, Group Industrial Assets. “The pioneering choice of LNG we announced in 2017 is a step forward to achieve our objective of being carbon neutral by 2050 and to accelerate the energy transition in transport and logistics.”

5 MWel biogas plant started with building the first 1.5 MWel running on cattle slurry and chicken manure

Kirsehir/ Vienna: Biogest received its second order to build an agricultural biogas plant for Morevim, a financial service provider and one of the leading energy investors in Turkey. The project is the second biogas plant in Turkey, which was developed in cooperation with Enerlinc Ltd. After successfully entering the Asian market with an Indian and South Korean Biogest PowerCompact biogas plant, this Biogest PowerRing biogas plant represents the further expansion of the Turkish project pipeline.

The plant has an electrical output of 1.5 MW and is operated with cattle slurry and chicken manure, using 130.000 tonnes agricultural waste per year. The slurry will be transformed during the production process into high quality organic fertilizer, which substitutes the use of chemical fertilizers. The biogas plant is carried out in the proven high efficiency Biogest PowerRing technology, which has advantages regarding the energy efficiency and operational safety as well as the space-saving modular design.

Increasing energy gap with growing technology and population density has risen the importance of renewable energy resources. The biogas production from animal, agricultural and domestic waste is one of the most frequently studied and researched topics in Turkey. The Turkish Law forbids spreading the fresh slurry on fields, which constitutes another incentive. The published tariff by the Renewable Energy Resources Support Mechanism (YEKDEM) is attractive until June 2021 due to a six months expansion granted last month.

Morevim President Faruk Güles says: “As a company, we are already generating electricity in the solar system. The location of the biogas plant is a very advantageous region in terms of agricultural and animal waste. We wanted to increase our current electricity generation capacity and enter the biogas sector, which is an environmentally friendly system. We really like the Biogest PowerRing system. The presentations were very convincing and I decided that the Biogest technology is more efficient than other conventional biogas systems across the market.

Mustafa Turgutalp and Mehmet Ilker from Enerlinc Biogest’s exclusive distributor: “With our experience in energy projects, our skilled staff and the support of Biogest we are optimistic to develop further biogas projects throughout Turkey and other countries in Asia.”

Biogest is an internationally active biogas plant manufacturer and operator with its headquarters in Austria and subsidiaries in France, US, UK, Italy, Romania, Serbia and the Czech Republic. More than 160 biogas plant projects generating electricity or biomethane have been completed to date. Our reference plants are located in several European countries, India, South Korea and Turkey. The global market is served by licenced partners.

As a renewable source of energy, biogas offers technological, ecological and economic advantages: energy can be generated 365 days a year, at all times of the day and night, and therefore biogas plays an important role in the mix of renewable energy from water, sun and wind. In addition to helping achieve climate protection goals, biogas also helps reduce reliance on energy imports. Decentralised energy generation also guarantees sustainable local development.

Ductor, a Finnish-Swiss biotechnology company, will develop up to 200 new biogas and sustainable fertilizer projects in Europe and North America in the next three years. The company received a significant investment from BW Group, one of the world’s leading maritime groups in the tanker, gas, and offshore segments.

The new projects such as biogas plants will use agricultural or fish waste to create two separate products: renewable biogas and sustainable organic fertilizer. This circular economy model will help significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from both the energy and agriculture sectors. Building the new facilities will be a clear move towards making the EU’s economy more sustainable, as stated in the new European
Green Deal, with the goal of turning the climate and environmental challenges into opportunities.

The new facilities will be built in Germany, Poland, France, Spain, Norway, and the United States, among others. They are planned to be in operation within a few years. “As company owners we need to push and do our utmost to counter climate change. Ductor’s goal is to use the circular economy as a weapon in this fight and now, with the help of BW Group, we can speed up our operations,” Mr. Ari Mokko, Founder and CEO of Ductor, says.

With their investment, BW Group will become a major shareholder in Ductor as well as a strategic partner. Mr. Andreas Beroutsos, a senior executive at BW and now a Board Member of Ductor, says: “BW Group has been focused on the energy transition for some time, with prior investments in batteries, renewables, water treatment, and other technologies to address global challenges. Ductor has a unique solution producing two valuable outputs from waste: biofuels and organic fertilizers. We are delighted to be partnering with Ari Mokko, Ductor’s visionary founder, his team and their existing investors to help Ductor grow and make a positive contribution to resolving some of today’s environmental, energy, land and food challenges.”

During the last year, Ductor opened its first operational sustainable fertilizer and biogas facility in Mexico and contracted for three new facilities in Poland. The company already has around 75 new projects under development in Europe and North America.

An urgent need for sustainable agriculture

The transition to sustainable agriculture is driven by new technologies, research and innovation. This “new agriculture” will not only slow down climate change but also provide sustainable economic rewards for farmers by creating new business opportunities with a circular economy. Ductor’s fermentation technology converts agricultural waste, such as chicken manure, into efficient organic fertilizer for large-scale farming and biogas in the form of biomethane to replace fossil fuel energy. Healthier soils and regenerative farming also contribute to less polluted waters.

“Ductor is committed to increasing agricultural biodiversity, enriching soils, improving watersheds, and enhancing ecosystem services. We need to capture carbon in soil and above-ground biomass, reversing current global trends of atmospheric accumulation. Our job is to help nature do its job better by transforming organic waste into carbon-negative fertilizers and renewable energy,” Mr. Mokko says.

  • The ‘Renewable Gas Success Stories’ feature 93 organisations involved in the transition towards carbon neutrality and a resource efficient economy.

  • The success stories cover 50 case studies focusing on cutting-edge technologies, innovative applications and practice-oriented research tackling the whole renewable gas value chain.

  • This publication showcases the efforts of the industry to scale-up renewable gases and boost the socio-economic and environmental benefits of the sector.


Brussels 2 December 2020 – The ‘Renewable Gas Success Stories’ have been drafted in cooperation with EBA members. The publication features 93 companies and research institutes working in the renewable gas sector and gathers 50 successful projects contributing to the scale-up of the renewable gas industry including:

  • Cutting-edge technologies enhancing the technological and environmental performance of renewable gas plants.
  • Innovative applications and services in different sectors, including transport, waste-management or the agrobusiness.
  • Latest practice-oriented research activities tackling the whole renewable gas value chain.

Biogas and biomethane can play a strategic role in the transition towards carbon neutrality and a resource-efficient economy. Our industry is constantly working on the implementation of technological improvements to facilitate the decarbonisation of the energy sector. Renewable gases are also a solution to tackle other environmental challenges. By using organic feedstock to produce biogas and biomethane we are turning waste into a valuable resource. The production of these renewable gases from agriculture and farming residues and the use of digestate as biofertiliser supports the development of a more sustainable and efficient primary sector.

This publication demonstrates that the potential of the sector is tremendous and diverse. It is the narrative on how the industry is improving the performance of plants such as the world’s largest facility for integrated on-site biogas production and upgrading. This plant includes a liquefaction process to use biomethane as a vehicle fuel. The sector is also looking at new applications and valorisation routes. Large-scale biogas upgrading systems can, for instance, inject renewable gas into the national grid while providing a second value stream of high-quality liquid CO2.

Some of the successful projects explore sustainable alternatives and synergies, such as the development of regenerative farming systems. This promotes the sustainable use of agricultural feedstocks, while simultaneously boosting carbon capture, local biodiversity, soil organic matter and, consequently, soil fertility. Other projects are based on innovative services to facilitate the deployment of renewable gases, including support for the commercialisation and injection of biomethane into the grid. The use of high-tech is also underpinning the development of the sector with initiatives such as the conception of an advanced sensor technology to detect, localise and quantify methane emissions using integrated drone-based systems.

Despite all current efforts from the EU, transport is the only sector which is not decarbonizing and even shows an increase in GHG emissions on a yearly basis since 2014. The need for further actions to reduce emissions in the transport sector must be addressed without delay.
Increasing the use of biogas as a transport fuel is one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transport. However, the current EU regulations are not technology-neutral and hamper the development of renewable alternative fuels.

This webinar will discuss the options how European legislation could better support the uptake of biomethane as a transport fuel. The study ‘Crediting System for Renewable Fuels in EU Emissions Standards for Road Transport’ produced by Frontier Economics for the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy will be also presented.

The webinar will take place on 12 November from 08:30 to 10:00 CET.

For a fast-growing technique, such as biogas and biomethane production, it is vital making progress in performance. Besides developing all kinds of efficiency improvements, one key puzzle is minimizing the unwanted releases of possible methane emissions. Therefore, reliable data concerning fugitive methane emissions at biogas and biomethane plants are necessary. Plant operators must be supported in obtaining better data and knowledge about potential emissions at their plants, how to avoid emissions and how to further improve the environmental performance of their biogas system.

The European Biogas Association (EBA), together with the partners of the EVEMBI (Evaluation and Reduction of Methane Emissions from Different European Biogas Plant Concepts) project, elaborated a report proposing minimum requirements and recommendations to facilitate the development and the implementation of national voluntary monitoring systems for self and external inspection of possible
methane emissions on biogas and biomethane plants in European countries. 

Lessons learned and knowledge build-up from existing voluntary systems in Europe (Sweden, Denmark and Switzerland) served as basis for the content of this document, which integrates the information sheet for biogas industry ‘Methane emission mitigation strategies‘.

The German version of the report is available and can be downloaded here.

EBA has the pleasure to invite you to the Webinar ‘Turning the tide: Green fuels for the maritime sector’, taking place on 22 June from 10:00 to 11:30.

International shipping-related emissions are expected to significantly increase by 2050 if mitigation measures are not implemented. The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) is engaged in reducing CO2 emissions by at least 40% by 2030 and it pursues further emissions reductions to reach savings up to 70% by 2050 compared to 2008. The EU is also planning to extend the EU ETS to the maritime sector and increase the carbon price.

In the pathway towards carbon-neutrality, alternative fuels such as bio-LNG have an untapped potential in decarbonizing the maritime transport sector and help to reach its climate goals.

According to the latest study of the Gas for Climate, the demand for bio-LNG in shipping is expected to reach around 461 TWh by 2050.

In our webinar we will outline how bio-LNG production can be scaled up, what is the political context and how it can help shipowners to reach the climate targets by 2030 and 2050.

On 15 May 2020, 11.00-12.30 (CEST), the Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform will organise a webinar to highlight the benefits of linking renewable energy generation and waste management in form of biogas from organic waste. 

The revised Waste Framework Directive calls for the diversion of biodegradable waste from landfill and incineration. At the same time, regions also have to implement separate collection of biowaste and select a treatment that counts as recycling such as anaerobic digestion and composting. This process offers new opportunities for regions to meet their Renewable Energy targets, to become more energy-independent, and to create new local employment in a circular bio-economy.

This webinar offers local and regional policy makers as well as renewable energy and waste management experts insights into the link between waste management, renewable energy and circular economy and its socio-economic benefits. This is illustrated with three excellent good practices showcasing the separate collection of biowaste to be treated in a biogas and composting plant, the co-digestion of kitchen and agricultural waste and a biogas-powered district heating using local waste streams. You will have the opportunity to engage in questions and discussion with those who have implemented them as well as with our thematic experts.
