GIDARA Energy is pleased to announce the collaboration between its Advanced Methanol Amsterdam (AMA) plant and key players in the value chain from non-recyclable waste to advanced methanol:  PARO, bp and Linde.

AMA's goal is to contribute to better and more sustainable fuels and a circular economy. The integration of the entire value chain is therefore essential for the success of GIDARA Energy's complete business case and for achieving government targets for reducing CO 2 emissions as defined in the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II).

Wim van der Zande , CEO of GIDARA Energy:- “The value chain represents an important step in achieving GIDARA Energy's goal of converting non-recyclable waste into valuable end products. As such, GIDARA Energy, bp, PARO and Linde are respecting their commitment to improve their sustainable development footprint, moving towards a circular economy. "

In collaboration with AMA, the Amsterdam- based waste treatment company PARO will transform non-recyclable waste into pellets which will be used as raw material in the plant. The granulated feedstock (PFM) is converted into advanced syngas using GIDARA Energy's patented HTW® technology, which is then converted into advanced methanol.

Gerard Putman , Director of PARO:- “The combination of GIDARA's experience in chemical plants and gasification and that of PARO in waste treatment and recycling makes it possible to develop a sorting and granulation center for waste. waste suitable for HTW® gasification technology. The fact that the PARO waste treatment is adjacent to the AMA site eliminates the need for unnecessary transport and handling of waste and pellets. "

AMA works exclusively with bp for the flow of the project's advanced methanol. Advanced methanol can help decarbonize the global transportation and petrochemical sectors. This feedstock can contribute to increasing European mandates for (advanced) waste-based biofuels, as it is considered advanced by the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II).

David Bucknall , senior vice president of refining and product trading at bp:- “bp recognizes the need for the world to move from a linear economy to a circular economy, which means reconsidering the way we think about waste. We believe that by partnering with AMA for the advanced methanol flow, we can use our long-standing expertise in biofuels to successfully integrate AMA's product into the multiple energy markets in which we operate. . "

GIDARA Energy and AMA are working closely with Linde to develop the capture and production of clean green CO 2 , to be supplied by OCAP, a subsidiary of Linde, to horticulture under tight. A CO 2 enriched atmosphere in greenhouses is important for plant growth and the industry faces a shortage of CO 2 availability in the near future. Without the availability of green CO 2 as supplied by OCAP, greenhouses have no alternative but to produce their own CO 2.by burning natural gas. This jeopardizes their sustainability goals. In addition, GIDARA Energy, AMA and Linde are working together to make O 2 available  for the conversion process used by AMA.

Jacob Limbeek, Director of OCAP:- “We are delighted to collaborate with GIDARA Energy and AMA, which offers OCAP the possibility of using green CO 2 . Without the availability of green CO 2 as supplied by OCAP, greenhouses have no alternative but to produce their own CO 2 by burning natural gas. This jeopardizes their sustainability goals. "

The AMA plant will be fully operational in 2023, which is a big step towards Europe's targets for reducing CO 2 emissions , as defined in the Paris Agreement . The AMA plant will produce an average of 87,000 tonnes of advanced methanol annually for use in blending advanced biofuels.
