GIDARA Energy announces first advanced methanol facility in Amsterdam

June 10, 2021 |

In the Netherlands, GIDARA Energy announced its first advanced biofuels facility in Amsterdam; Advanced Methanol Amsterdam (“AMA”). The plant will convert non-recyclable waste into advanced methanol. This product will be used for fuel blending, and therefore meet governmental objectives to achieve CO2 emission reductions as defined in the RED II and translated in national legislations. The produced renewable fuel will replace fossil-based fuels, creating significant carbon savings.

The AMA facility will utilize the HTW® technology that has been both technically and commercially proven for multiple decades in global industrial-scale facilities using biomass and waste (RDF) as feedstock.

In 2019, GIDARA Energy acquired the commercially proven HTW® biomass gasification technology (originally developed by RWE and Thyssenkrupp) to convert non-recyclable waste to valuable end- products. GIDARA Energy aims for near-zero emission by minimizing overall waste throughout the entire value chain and process integration.

GIDARA Energy emphasizes maximizing reliability by utilizing the same size and configuration as applied in previous HTW® facilities, which were operational for more than 10 years. The AMA facility will produce around 87.5 KTA (kilotons per annum) of renewable methanol by converting non-recyclable waste equivalent to that of 290.000 households yearly, which otherwise would be landfilled or incinerated.
