VTTI is exploring the possibility of developing a large-scale bio-energy installation at Zevenellen business park in Leudal, Limburg, The Netherlands. VTTI Bio-Energy Limburg’s primary objective is to pave the way for sustainable energy practices and circularity. By transforming organic sidestreams and waste into green gas (aka biomethane or Renewable Natural Gas) and organic manure fertilizer pellets, VTTI is not only addressing environmental concerns but also playing a role in advancing the region’s sustainability agenda.

VTTI is exploring the creation of a modern facility that brings renewable energy and circularity together at this multifunctional and circular business park. The processing of organic sidestreams produces biogas that is upgraded to green gas and injected into the Dutch gas grid. This is a concrete implementation of the Climate Accord, which states that the Netherlands wants to produce 2 billion m3 of green gas by the year 2030. The project thus gives a strong push to the energy transition and further sustainability of the Netherlands.

The company has initiated dialogues with local residents and stakeholders in the vicinity of Zevenellen business park, and is committed to hosting information sessions and consultations to ensure transparency and inclusivity every step of the way. The Zevenellen project forms part of VTTI’s strategy and its growing portfolio of bio-energy facilities in the Netherlands and Europe. Through planning and collaboration, we’re committed to ensuring that our operations align with the highest standards of environmental responsibility.
