With the increased focus on the environment, new methods are being developed to minimize the emission of waste. Innovative techniques ensure that products that were previously considered as waste material (food waste, sludge, used oils and fats, agricultural residues) are now used as raw material for the production of green fuel.
Three-quarters of all renewable energy produced in the Netherlands is from biomass. This plant and animal material can serve as a source for the production of electricity, heat and gas. This is possible by either fermentation or gasification of biomass.
These raw materials are often delivered by ship. A location on or near deep water is for companies operating in the eco-industry, an absolute prerequisite. Zuiderzeehaven has plenty of opportunities for these companies.
