CMA CGM, ENGIE unveil initiative to produce second-generation biomethane

July 3, 2022 |

In France, CMA CGM Group and ENGIE will co-invest in the Salamander project, an industrial and commercial unit for second-generation biomethane production and they aim to produce up to 200,000 tons of renewable gas annually worldwide by 2028.

Majority-owned by ENGIE and the CMA CGM Group, the production facility is being considered to be located in Le Havre. The unit will be fueled by dry biomass from local wood-waste sources, along with solid recovered fuel, and will produce the biomethane via pyrogasification process. The production site will aim to produce 11,000 tons of biomethane annually, starting in 2026.

The two companies expect to finalize their investment decision in late 2022. A funding request for this initiative has been submitted to the European Commission’s Innovation Fund.
