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.

According to the document, 17 pct of biomethane is used today to fuel natural gas vehicles (NGVs) in 25 pct of Europe's refueling network, resulting in a 35 pct reduction of emissions when compared to conventional fuels -- the highest rate of emissions reduction compared to other fuels, with greater potential when coupled with renewable gas. The report notes 117 terawatt-hours of renewable gas could be distributed as transport fuel as bioCNG and bioLNG by 2030 -- 40 pct of the overall fuel consumption of NGVs, estimated at more than 13 million vehicles in 2030.
A higher uptake of bioCNG and bioLNG in the sector will result in an overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction of 55 pct . Up to one million jobs will be created to ensure the scale-up of biomethane in the coming decades. New CNG and LNG stations and vehicles must also be created and must be compatible with their renewable counterparts, the document notes.

To that end, the consortium -- Shell, DISA, Scania, IVECO, CNH Industrial Capital Europe under the trademark of IVECO Capital and Nordsol -- will each deliver separate activities that will see 2,000 more LNG trucks on the road, 39 LNG fueling stations and the construction of a BioLNG production plant in the Netherlands.
The LNG Retail stations will form part of a pan-European network and be built in Belgium, France, Germany the Netherlands, Poland and Spain. The stations will be located along core road network corridors from Spain to eastern Poland. (Source: BioLNG Euronet, Petrol Plaza, Dec., 2018)
