Nordsol, Attero and Titan have collaborated on the FirstBio2Shipping project for the production of bio-liquefied natural gas (bio-LNG) to support sustainable maritime transport.

To attain decentralised production of the fuel, the partners have reached a final investment decision to build a plant at the facility of waste processor Attero in Wilp, the Netherlands.

With the first delivery of bio-LNG expected in early 2024, the plant will generate about 2,400tpa of bio-LNG or liquefied biomethane.

Attero will be involved in the processing of domestic biowaste into six million normal cubic metres of biogas on a yearly basis.

Using its patented iLNG technology, Nordsol will work with Attero to generate 2,400t of high-purity bio-LNG and 5,000t of liquid bio-CO₂ from the biogas annually.

As the exclusive long-term off-taker, clean fuel supplier Titan will deliver this bio-LNG to customers in the maritime sector.

Compared to conventional maritime fuel, the bio-LNG produced by the companies is anticipated to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 92%.

Nordsol commercial director Léon van Bossum said: “Nordsol is committed to making bio-LNG mainstream together with various partners.

“In 2021, we built the first Dutch bio-LNG installation to make road transport more sustainable. As a frontrunner, we are proud to also contribute to the decarbonisation of the maritime sector, together with Titan and Attero.

“The FirstBio2Shipping project is intended to start a snowball effect, resulting in more and larger installations that help make shipping more sustainable.”
