Nordsol and DBG Bio Energy collaborate on bio-LNG production

June 2nd, 2021: Nordsol and DBG Bio Energy. have signed an agreement to collaborate on the development of a new bio-LNG installation in the Netherlands. The envisioned installation will be established and owned by DBG Bio Energy.  Nordsol will supply the bio-LNG installation and provide their expertise on bio-LNG permitting processes, the bio-LNG and bioCO2 supply chain and process calculations to support DBG Bio Energy in the development of this project.

Bio-LNG is a renewable replacement for LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas). In coming years, bio-LNG will play an essential role in decarbonizing heavy duty road and water transport, as electrification of large trucks and ships is very challenging, and bio-LNG is a solution that’s avalaible today. The bio-LNG which DBG Bio Energy aims to produce can be stored and distributed using existing LNG infrastructure.

DBG Bio Energy is using a patented process to convert cellulose-containing industrial waste streams into biogas. Nordsols iLNG technology can process this biogas into bio-LNG in an energy-efficient way. This technology can also provide additional green value through capture and liquefaction of bio-CO2 from the biogas to replace fossil CO2.

The envisioned installation can produce about 15 kton bio-LNG per year. This allows for more than 60 million kilometers of CO2 neutral driving.

Berkay Güres, Managing Director of DBG Bio Energy B.V. said: “this is an important development for us and we are looking forward to working closely with our partners at Nordsol. DBG Bio Energy is excited about the environmentally- beneficial role that it can play in decarbonizing transport through its production of green bio-LNG.”

Jerom van Roosmalen, CEO at Nordsol said: “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.”
