Nordsol plant opened by King Willem-Alexander

October 14th, 2021 – With the press of a button Dutch king Willem-Alexander officially put into service the first bio-LNG plant of the Netherlands. With this scoop, initiators Nordsol, Renewi and Shell have taken the next step in making road freight transport more sustainable. It is expected that the new plant will produce an estimated 3.4 kilotons of bio-LNG per year, preventing the emission of more than 14.3 kilotons of fossil CO2. This is sufficient for 13 million on-road kilometers. The partners expect that thanks to the construction of new plants, the available quantity of bio-LNG will, over the next four years, increase at least tenfold. The bio-LNG plant in Amsterdam is in part subsidized by the EU (20 percent), as part of its strategy to decarbonise the road transport.
