GIDARA Energy B.V. announced plans to develop its first advanced biofuels facility in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The plant will have a capacity to produce 87,000 metric tons/year of methanol. The plant will be fed with 175,000 metric tons/year of non-recyclable waste.
Commencement of the project will support the government’s plans of reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in synchronization to EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) targets.
The plant will utilize a biomass gasification technology- High-Temperature Winkler Gasification Technology (HTW) technology (developed by RWE and ThyssenKrupp) and is estimated to commence operations in 2024.
GIDARA Energy is a joint venture between G.I. Dynamics B.V. and Ara Partners LLC and focuses on converting non-recyclable waste into syngas.
