Anaergia’s Tønder plant will supply CO2 to European Energy A/S for the production of green e-methanol as fuel for container ships

Content of the article

BURLINGTON, Ontario — Anaergia Inc. (“Anaergia” or the “Company”) (TSX: ANRG) announced today that it has signed an agreement with European Energy A/S (“European Energy”). Under the terms of this agreement, Anaergia will supply European Energy with up to 60,000 tonnes per year of liquefied biogenic carbon dioxide (“CO2”) for a period of 10 years.

Biogenic carbon dioxide is carbon dioxide that is released during the decomposition of organic matter such as food waste. All of Anaergia’s factories use organic waste to produce biogas, which is made up of methane and carbon dioxide. Once this gas is processed, Anaergia produces pipeline-grade renewable natural gas and a clean stream of carbon dioxide that is normally released into the atmosphere from which it originates. Biogenic carbon dioxide from organic materials is considered a desirable feedstock for low-carbon fuels because its use does not add new carbon to our atmosphere.

European Energy, a major multinational producer of renewable wind and solar energy, will produce green e-methanol from this biogenic CO2. Under an agreement that European Energy had previously entered into with A.P. Moller–Maerska global leader in integrated container logistics services, with operations in 130 countries, green e-methanol will be used to power the first container ship that AP Moller – Maersk has built to run on this carbon-neutral fuel.

Anaergia will supply the liquefied CO2 from the anaerobic digesters that will operate in its plant under construction in Tønder, Denmark. Through this agreement with European Energy, Anaergia will build a state-of-the-art CO2 liquefaction system in the plant.

“The benefit for us is the ability to sell the biogenic CO2 from our factories that is produced when we convert organic matter into methane and CO2. By selling this CO2 instead of venting it back into the atmosphere, our factories are helping to decarbonise hard-to-reduce sectors, like shipping, while also becoming more profitable as we turn this waste gas from our factories into a useful fuel.” , said Andrew Benedek, president and CEO of Anaergia.

“This is a great example of carbon capture and use (“CCU”), a critical step on the road to net zero emissions. We look forward to working with European Energy on this innovative venture, and potentially working with them on other projects in the future as the need for green methanol increases globally,” added Dr. Benedek.

Knud Erik Andersen, co-founder and CEO of European Energy added: “We are delighted to partner with Anaergia for the supply of biogenic CO2 to our Danish e-methanol plants. In Anaergia, we have found a partner who, like European Energy, is committed to fighting climate change through new technologies that can have a real impact. We look forward to working with Anaergia, not only in Denmark, but also worldwide. »
