GIDARA Energy has secured a key environmental permit from the province of Noord-Holland for its Advanced Methanol Amsterdam (AMA) facility.
The advanced methanol facility is located at BioPark, the primary development site for producers of renewable fuels in the Port of Amsterdam. The facility will convert around 360,000 tons of local waste into 90,000 tons of renewable methanol, a fuel that can be used in road transport, the maritime sector and production of sustainable aviation fuels.
GIDAR Energy said the process of obtaining the permit included a detailed review of the project, including a thorough assessment of its potential environmental impacts, a public consultation process, and a full review of its proposed design and construction plans to ensure the facility meets all applicable environmental standards.
“We are thrilled to have earned this permit and are eager to get to work building our advanced methanol facility,” said Wim van der Zande, founder
