With 24/7 uptime and a full-time staff of 15, our pilot plant in the port of Amsterdam uses our patented technology—a proprietary biowaste gasification system—to convert waste wood into biogas suitable for catalytic conversion intro green molecules and green fuels. The facility is operated by Bio Energy Netherlands, a wholly owned subsidiary of NZH, and also serves as a base for our ongoing research and development efforts. The plant’s groundbreaking biowaste to biohydrogen production is on track for 2023, enabling the production of first-of-its-kind fuel-cell-grade hydrogen.
Our next plant in The Netherlands will be in Delfzijl, where we are sited, permitted, and supported by a Dutch government feed-in tariff to supply green gas to the local grid. We are working with global leaders in the green energy transition to build it.
Now in development in the north of the Netherlands, BEN’s Bio Fuel Groningen (BFG) project is located near the German border, in the port of Delfzijl. We expect this commercial-scale plant to come online in 2025, using waste wood to produce up to 45 million cubic meters of biomethane per year for the Dutch grid. In addition to green gas, BFG will generate up to 150,000 tonnes of green carbon dioxide for use by greenhouses, cold storage facilities, and other industrial consumers. We are planning our next big projects in The Netherlands and Germany, with more to come in Europe and North America. Come join us.
