Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs Henk Kamp, Eneco and Groningen Seaports opened a newly converted Eneco plant on Tuesday, which will supply steam from biomass to the chemical park at Delfzijl in the Netherlands, primarily for AkzoNobel’s Specialty Chemicals site. The converted plant delivers twice as much sustainable energy for the same amount of biomass, resulting in a reduction of a whopping 100,000 tons of CO2 per year. AkzoNobel, Eneco and Groningen Seaports have jointly invested around €40 million in the project, with Eneco entering into a 12-year contract with AkzoNobel for the supply of bio-steam.
