Wartsila Supplying Norwegian bioLNG Production Plant (Int'l.)
Wartsila
Date: 2021-05-28
Finnish technology group Wartsila Energy reports it will supply equipment to Norway-based Biokraft, a subsidiary of the Scandinavian Biogas Group and a major player in the global biogas market, for a biogas liquefaction plant in Norway. The equipment is expected to be delivered in May. 2022.

The 25 million tpd capacity plant will extend an existing bioLNG production plant at Skogn in Norway, also supplied by Wartsila, to a combined total of 50 tpd making it by far the largest facility of its kind in the world.

Wartsila Gas Solutions is a market leader with innovative systems and lifecycle solutions for the gas value chain. Our main focus areas are handling of gas in seaborne transport (storage, fuel, transfer and BOG management), gas to power, liquefaction and biogas solutions. We help our customers on the journey towards a sustainable future through focus on lifecycle, innovation and digitalization, according to the company release.

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.

The European Green Deal -- In the Fast Lane with Biomethane in Transport (Int'l. Ind. Report Attached)
European Biogas Association ,Natural and Bio Gas Vehicle Association
Date: 2020-06-15
The attached document from the European Biogas Association (EBA) and the Natural and Bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA Europe) illustrates the current and potential uptake of biomethane in the transportation sector.

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.

Consortium Committed to European Transport BioLNG (Ind. Report)
BioLNG
Date: 2018-12-10
EuroNet is reporting a European Union co-funded BioLNG consortium's commitment to the expansion of LNG as a road transport fuel and new infrastructure that should ensure the long-term success and mass scale adoption across Europe.

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)
