GIDARA Energy teams with PARO, bp and Linde on Advanced Methanol Amsterdam

July 1, 2021 |

In the Netherlands, GIDARA Energy announced a collaboration between its Advanced Methanol Amsterdam (“AMA”) facility and key players in the value chain from non-recyclable waste to advanced methanol: PARO, bp and Linde.
Together with AMA, Amsterdam-based waste treatment company PARO will pelletize the non-recyclable waste to be used as feedstock in the facility. The Pelletized Feed Material (PFM) is converted into advanced Syngas using GIDARA Energy’s patented HTW® technology, which is then converted into advanced methanol.
AMA is exclusively working with bp for the offtake of advanced methanol from the project. Advanced methanol can help decarbonise the global transportation and petrochemical sectors. The feedstock can contribute towards the growing European waste-based (advanced) biofuels mandates as it is considered advanced under the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II).
GIDARA Energy and AMA work closely with Linde to develop the capture and production of clean green CO2, which is intended to be provided by Linde subsidiary OCAP to greenhouse horticulture. A CO2-enriched atmosphere in the greenhouses is important in the growth of plants, and the sector is facing shortage of availability of CO2 in the near future. Without availability of green CO2 as provided by OCAP, the greenhouses have no other alternative than to produce their own CO2 by burning natural gas. This puts their sustainability goals at risk. In addition, GIDARA Energy, AMA and Linde are working together to make O2 available for the conversion process used by AMA.
