About this event

The LNG Europe Summit will focus on today’s critical energy demands, security, and energy independence in Europe. It will serve as a platform to address the future of LNG and its evolving role in the European energy mix, particularly focused on geopolitical shifts and the global push towards decarbonization. During the two days of the conference, we will dive into new supply and demand trends, pricing outlooks, regulatory impacts of decarbonization efforts, and the strategic development of LNG infrastructure. Key sessions will explore the implications of RED III standards, assess the readiness for hydrogen and biomethane ecosystems, and discuss innovative approaches to scale up bioLNG production worldwide.

The summit aims to bring together industry experts, policymakers, and stakeholders to discuss the major applications of LNG in shipping, road transport, and potentially as a sustainable aviation fuel. Panels will assess the strategic role of LNG in achieving net-zero targets, the alignment with EU climate goals, and the integration of cutting-edge production technologies. Additionally, the event will highlight collaborative opportunities to enhance market security and independence, aiming for Europe’s energy resilience.

EMBARK ON A JOURNEY OF BIOLNG EXCELLENCE
We are thrilled to announce an exclusive site visit one day prior to the Summit, on the 28th of May  2024, to the First Dutch BIOLNG Plant, initiated by Nordsol, Renewi and Shell. Spaces are limited, reserve your space early!

Nordsol opened the first Dutch bio-LNG plant in October 2021. This plant upgrades and liquefies 8 million Nm3 biogas from organic waste into 3.4 kilotons of bio-LNG and 6.3 kilotons of biogenic liquid CO2 per year. The plant is built, owned, operated and maintained by Nordsol. The project was realized in strong collaboration with Renewi and Shell.

Renewi collects organic waste throughout the Netherlands and converts it into biogas. Part of this biogas is delivered to Nordsol for the production of bio-LNG. Nordsol has optimized technology to produce bio-LNG from biogas locally at an affordable price point. Shell distributes the bio-LNG to supply customers with bio-LNG and help them reduce their carbon footprint.
