The Nordsol Concept

 

The Nordsol concept helps biogas producers to overcome the challenge of entering the high value fuel market. It enables biogas producers to gain an attractive price for their biogas without the burden of financing and operating a bio-LNG plant and negotiating complex contracts with offtakers in the transport fuel market.

 

Nordsol and the biogas partner engage in a partnership to build a business model that includes:

    • A long term biogas sales agreement
    • Use of high class fit to scale technology
    • Building, owning, operating and maintaining the bio-LNG plant in partnership with Nordsol
    • A long term bio-LNG offtake agreement
    • Shared risk and return in a bio-LNG SPV
The Nordsol concept for local, economically viable bio-LNG production

How we finance our plants

We have an elaborate network of financing possibilities in the Netherlands and increasing insight into what finance sources can be made available in other regions. This includes subsidies, grants and green incentives, funds, banks and private means of financing.

Additionally, we believe in participation in plants or SPV’s with our own resources. To investigate whether there is an achievable business case for bio-LNG we welcome the dialogue on opportunities.

What is the return of investment?

Depending on the factors described in the phased approach, the financial return of a project varies. Nevertheless, it is safe to say that with an attractive gas flow, ROIs of 10% or more are readily achievable. This assumes a full write-off and repay of the installation in 10 years and no residual value of the assets and the business position obtained. Here the investment really begins to pay off.

In addition, Nordsols iLNG technology can easily produce liquid CO2 as a by-stream to bring an attractive additional sales value. This is carbon capturing in practice. The real return sits in the carbon profile of the bio-LNG production within your own facilities, benefitting both the planet and your financial return.
