Wärtsilä supplying tech for world’s largest climate-neutral bio-LNG plant


Technology group Wärtsilä is supplying equipment for the REEFUEL climate-neutral bio-liquefied natural gas (LNG) production plant in Burghaun, Germany.

The world’s second largest plant of its kind, REEFUEL will have a capacity of around 63,000 tonnes of bio-LNG per year, produced from liquefied biomethane and synthetic methane utilising renewable energy. 

With direct access to the MIDAL – one of Germany’s most powerful gas pipelines – the plant will use biomethane derived from communal and agricultural waste materials as feedstock. 

The project, being undertaken by Germany energy company REEFUELERY GmbH, a joint venture of Erdgas Südwest GmbH and avanca, will deliver the biomethane to the Alternoil filling station network as bio-LNG, which – according to Jürgen Muhle, CEO, avanca group – can be used in any LNG-fuelled truck.
