Shell, MSC Partner on Low-Carbon Maritime Alt. Fuels (Int'l.)
MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company,Shell
Date: 2021-07-19
Swiss-headquartered MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) reports it is partnering with Shell International Petroleum Company Ltd to develop and deploy "net-zero solutions" such as zero-emission alternative fuels and the technologies that will enable them with the ambition of contributing towards a "zero-carbon flexi-fuel concept vessel" to help the shipping sector's energy transition towards decarbonization.

As previously reported, the two firms have worked together over the last 10 years on projects, including bunkering biofuels and ultra-low sulfur fuels, and envisage a range of net-zero fuel solutions such as hydrogen-derived fuels and the use of methanol as a marine fuel. The companies have also been exploring the potential benefits of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to bio-LNG or synthetic variants.

Verbio Touts US, India Straw Biomethane Plant Plans (Ind. Report)
Verbio
Date: 2021-02-03
Leipzig, Germany-based biodiesel producer Verbio reports it will open two straw biomethane plants, one in India and the other in the US, as well as expand biodiesel production in Canada, befoe the year end.

According to the release, "Despite the decreasing market in the fuel segment as a result of the restricted mobility, Verbio achieved a record result. The company generated consolidated sales of €872 million. With a total production of 796,411 tons of biodiesel and bioethanol, Verbio once again increased the production record of the previous year. Biomethane production 'significantly' increased to 784 GWh, 11 pct above the previous year's result."

Verbio also noted it is investing more than €10 million to become the largest provider of bio-LNG in the German and European market from the middle of this year. (Source: Verbio, PR, 29 Jan., 20210 Contact: Verbio, Claus Sauter, CEO, +49 (0) 3493 747-40, www.verbio.de/en

Dutch bio-LNG Installation Construction Underway (Int'l. Report)
Renewi, Nordsol, Shell
Date: 2020-11-20
Nordsol is reporting construction is underway on the Netherlands' first bio-LNG installation in Westpoort, Amsterdam. The installation, which is expected to come online within one year, will produce 3.4 kt of bio-LNG per year.

Using Nordsol technology, biogas -- 60 pct methane and 40 pct CO2 -- extracted from organic waste is converted into bio-LNG and liquid bio-CO2, a transparent and fair supply chain. The technology makes it possible to efficiently separate pure methane from the biogas and liquefy it into bio-LNG. The CO2 by-product is then reused in the market, therefore ensuring an additional reduction in CO2 emissions, leading to a 100 pct CO2 neutral fuel.

Stirling, AB Partner on Biomethane Plants (Ind. Report)
Stirling Cryogenics
Date: 2020-11-06
Dutch firm Stirling Cryogenics, part of the Torino, Italy-based HYSYTECH group, reports it is partnering with Italian firm AB on the design, construction, installation and maintenance of liquid biomethane production plants incorporating Stirling's cryogenerators.

Under the agreement, AB's CH4LNG "liquefier" unit, will be deployed with Stirling's cryogenerators for bio-LNG systems to process up to 12 tpd of biomethane for small and medium-sized biogas plants for upgrading to bio-LNG.

Wartsila to Supply German LNG/bio-LNG Plant (Int'l. Report)
Wartsila
Date: 2020-10-09
Helsinki-headquartered Wartsila Group reports it has contracted to supply and construct a 100,000 tpy plant for the production of carbon-neutral bio-LNG transport fuels in Cologne, Germany.

The plant, which is slated to be fully operational by autumn 2022, will incorporate a gas treatment system based on Wartsila's Puregas CA technology, a liquefaction unit using Wartsila's Semi-Dual Brayton technology, storage tanks, truck filling stations and necessary safety flare and auxiliary equipment.

The project will use liquid manure, food waste and similar waste material as feedstock that will be processed using anaerobic digestion to produce biogas to be upgraded to biomethane and injected into the natural gas grid.

TerraX, SWEN Impact Fund Biomethane JV Announced (Int'l. Report)
TerraX
Date: 2020-07-29
Italian renewable gas projects developer TerraX is reporting a joint venture with the SWEN Impact Fund for Transition (SWEN), managed by SWEN Capital Partners, the first European impact fund entirely dedicated to the financing of renewable gas infrastructure to invest in biomethane.

The joint venture will construct and operate 10 or more biomethane projects to produce renewable gas in Italy, which will be injected into the networks or marketed as bio-LNG. Once operational in 2022, the plants will produce enough energy to supply 100 heavy trucks and reduce emissions by 90 pct.

According to the company's website, the company's "mission is to spread and to improve new technologies for our projects in the field of anaerobic digestion and biomass gasification, designing and investing in eco-sustainable and innovative solutions, which produce value for the planet and for those who intend to operate consciously in it. We provide new technologies, projects and services for a greener future."
