Nouryon and Gasunie studying a planned green hydrogen unit at SkyNRG’s aviation biofuel plant

May 27, 2019 |

Also in the Netherlands, Nouryon and Gasunie are studying an expansion of a planned green hydrogen unit at Delfzijl, the Netherlands. The feasibility study follows a deal to convert sustainable electricity into green hydrogen for SkyNRG. The plant, which would convert renewable electricity into green hydrogen via water electrolysis, could be scaled up from 20 megawatts to at least 60 megawatts – which allows for a conversion of 9,000 tons of green hydrogen a year. Green hydrogen would be combined with waste and residue streams such as used cooking oil to produce 100,000 tons of sustainable aviation fuel and 15,000 tons of bioLPG per year.

Nouryon and Gasunie expect to take the final investment decision on the first phase of the Delfzijl project early 2020. A decision on the expansion to 60 megawatts is expected at the end of 2020. Earlier this year, Nouryon and Gasunie agreed to supply green hydrogen to BioMCN for the production of renewable methanol, a raw material for biofuels and the chemical industry.
