The largest venture into providing low carbon fuel to the transport sector
The Ghent Waste-to-Value Plant is our largest venture into providing low carbon fuel to the transport sector, whilst addressing a major challenge in sustainably treating manure and organic waste streams. The manure comes from farms across Flanders as well as surrounding industrial players.
The plant is designed to produce methane-rich biogas from the biological conversion of poultry manure. This will be upgraded to produce up to 60 tons per day of bio LNG. After the digestion process, the digestate will be stripped of nitrogen to produce a crystallised ammonium sulphate fertiliser stream. All solid digestate will be dried and pelletised for sales globally.
- The project makes use of an additional waste heat source from the neighbouring titanium dioxide plant to improve the carbon intensity of the installation.
