Titan announced its Liquified Biomethane (LBM) production project for 200,000 tonnes of LBM per year. The plant will be built at the Port of Amsterdam allowing supply to ships and trucks.
he majority of the LBM volumes produced by the plant will be supplied to the LBM-powered vessels of Titan’s launching customer. For the remaining volumes truck refuelling stations and industrial customers are also within scope.
The LBM will substitute fossil fuels, avoiding about a million tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions per year, equal to the annual emissions of about 25% of all diesel cars in the Netherlands.
The plant will be located adjacent to Titan’s berth in the Port of Amsterdam, from whom the land will be leased. The first LBM production is expected in 2025.
BioValue will supply a significant part of the biogas required for the total LBM production. For this, BioValue will construct a new biogas plant, near the LBM plant.
The remaining biogas will be sourced from other production installations throughout Europe that are connected to the existing gas grid. This hybrid sourcing setup enables the scale required for impactful decarbonisation of the marine industry.
We want to reduce emissions in our port area and lead the way in the transition to a sustainable society. This plant, with its hydrogen-ready design, is a perfect example that fits seamlessly with our long-term strategy for the port
said Roon van Maanen, Director Energy & Circular Industry at Port of Amsterdam.
