Zenith Energy Terminals and German company INERATEC to develop plant for e-fuels in the port of Amsterdam
Zenith Energy Terminals, one of the largest storage terminals in the port, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with German company INERATEC to construct a Power-to-Liquid plant in the port of Amsterdam. A Power-to-Liquid plant converts renewable energy (power) to a sustainable fuel (liquid). The plant has a planned annual production capacity of 35,000 tons and will be located on the terrain of Zenith Energy Terminals. The plant will be operational by 2027.
The production of the e-fuels requires green hydrogen and CO2. The green hydrogen will be produced locally and imported. The CO2 will be captured from Dutch industry. The aim is to produce sustainable kerosene, clean diesel and CO2-neutral gasoline, in order to serve the aviation, shipping and road transportation sectors.
Selection of the port of Amsterdam
The collaboration between Zenith Energy Terminals and INERATEC will leverage the existing infrastructure in the port of Amsterdam and the access to green hydrogen and CO2. The strategy of Port of Amsterdam on the energy transition and the circular economy is also viewed as an important catalyst. This new plant further strengthens the position of the port of Amsterdam as a sustainable energy-hub.
