CCU project: EEW plans to capture CO2 at its waste to energy plant in Delfzijl

Partnership with Engie and OCI to produce “green” methanol in the Netherlands

Waste-to-energy plant operator EEW is participating in a major carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) project in the north of the Netherlands. The company wants to capture CO2 at its waste to energy (wte) plant in Delfzijl, which it will then make available for the production of methanol, according to a joint press release from EEW, energy company Engie and chemicals firm OCI. As part of the HyNetherlands (HyNL) project, Engie will supply the hydrogen and OCI will produce the methanol. The partners say they have applied for project funding from the EU Innovation Fund.

HyNL aims to develop, build and operate one of the first large-scale industrial value chains in Europe for the production of e-methanol. In the first phase of the project, Engie will build a new 100 MW electrolysis facility on the site of the Eems power plant in Eemshaven. The facility will output the renewable hydrogen needed to produce e-methanol and supply green hydrogen to the local mobility and industrial sectors. Engie wants to power the electrolysis facility with renewable energy from offshore wind farms with a capacity of 200 MW....
