GIDARA Energy to built bio-methanol plant in Port of Amsterdam
GIDARA Energy announced that it has received the environmental permit for the bio-methanol plant to be built at Biopark, in the port of Amsterdam.
In particular, the environmental permit, granted by the province of Noord-Holland, allows GIDARA Energy to build its advanced methanol facility which will convert local waste into advanced methanol.
As explained, the renewable methanol facility, located in the Port of Amsterdam, will use GIDARA Energy’s patented HTW® gasification technology to convert waste into bio methanol, a versatile fuel that can be used in road transport, in the maritime sector, and for producing sustainable aviation fuels.
Obtaining this permit is a major milestone in the development of the facility, enabling the production of renewable fuels and, in the future, high quality circular chemicals.
This facility is a major step forward in our mission to reduce global carbon emissions and create a more circular economy. We thank the permitting authorities for their diligent and thorough review and look forward to continuing to work with them as we move ahead with the construction of our facility.
..said GIDARA Energy’s Founder, Wim van der Zande, and CEO Dr. Norbert Kamp expressed enthusiasm for the permit.
As informed, Advanced Methanol Amsterdam (AMA) is set to be built at BioPark, the primary development site for producers of renewable fuels in the Port of Amsterdam. The facility will convert approximately 360,000 tons of waste into 90,000 tons of renewable methanol every year.
The Port of Amsterdam facilitates companies that promote circular activities and the energy transition. GIDARA’s plant, which transforms waste into methanol, is a stellar example that will fit seamlessly into our port’s sustainability goals. We look forward to the moment they break ground.
…said Roon van Maanen, Head of Energy & Circular Industry at the Port of Amsterdam.
