Waste-to-Chemical Initiative Doubles in Size

AkzoNobelAn initiative to investigate how waste can be used as a raw material to produce chemicals has more than doubled in size since being launched late last year.

Initially formed by Dutch firm AkzoNobel, Canadian company Enerkem and four regional partners, the collaboration has since attracted eight more commercial parties.

The aim is to use Enerkem’s technology to manufacture synthesis gas from domestic and other waste and use it as a feedstock for making products such as methanol and ammonia.

The public-private partnership will study the options for setting up Europe’s first plant, either in Rotterdam or Delfzijl. The partners will publish the results of the study later this year.

The latest commercial organizations to join the partnership are Van Gansewinkel (founder of the Circularity Center), EEW Energy from Waste, BioMCN, Air Liquide, Veolia, Visser & Smit Hanab, the Port of Rotterdam Authority and DNV GL. They join founding partners AkzoNobel, Enerkem, the Investment and Development Company for the Northern Netherlands (NOM), Groningen Seaports, Clean Tech Delta and the South Holland development company InnovationQuarter.
