About GIDARA Energy
GIDARA Energy is a Dutch technology-based energy company focused on converting non-recyclable waste into syngas, a clean and incredibly versatile source of energy by using patented technologies. GIDARA Energy is a joint venture between G. I. Dynamics (The Netherlands) and ARA Partners (USA). Their first plant in Amsterdam will produce an average of 87.5 KTA (kilotons per annum) of renewable methanol from 175 KTA local non-recyclable waste.
GIDARA Energy’s first plant is Advanced Methanol Amsterdam (AMA) based in the Port of Amsterdam. AMA includes a testing facility, knowledge centre and full plant producing advanced methanol that meets the European biofuel mandate (RED II, June 2021) as well as local, Dutch legislation. The plant is expected to be fully operational in 2023, producing an average of 87.5 KTA (kilotons per annum) from 175 KTA non-recyclable waste. Its objective is to contribute to better fuels and a circular economy, while providing port expansion, thus more employment. AMA will be working in close cooperation with local partners and several universities.
AMA uses non-recyclable waste primarily to create advanced methanol for biofuel blending. Side streams such as green CO2 and solid residue are used for greenhouses and cement filling, respectively.
