IGES and FinCo cooperate on a new clean transportation fuel from non-recyclable plasticsAmsterdam / Dordrecht, february 14, 2019
Integrated Green Energy Solutions (IGES) and FinCo Fuel Nederland B.V. (FinCo) signed a 5-year agreement for the purchase and offtake of all liquid fuels from non-recyclable plastics that IGES will produce at their new Amsterdam production facility which is currently under construction. The new plant will start production in the summer of 2019. FinCo will distribute the fuels (10ppm ULSD among others) via her own distribution network. The main markets that will be supplied are the marine and transportation sector. The products comply with the latest quality requirements and play an important role in the transition from traditional hydrocarbon fuels to new low carbon fuels. “These waste-to-plastic fuels lead to a significant reduction of CO2 emissions which reflects the ambition of both companies”, said Bart-Willem ten Cate, responsible for biofuels and renewables at FinCo Fuel Group.
FinCo Fuel Group is active in the downstream oil market in primarily Northwest Europe. In the Netherlands FinCo’s core business is wholesale, retail, bunkering and direct sales of mineral oils and biofuels under the name FinCo Fuel Nederland B.V. FinCo is fully committed to increased usage of cleaner fuels and is dedicated to play an important role in reducing CO2 through a portfolio of alternative fuels. Jan-Willem van der Velden and Peter Nohlmans are the founders and shareholders of FinCo Fuel Group and form the Board of Directors of the company together with Pieter Peeters and Hans Wouda. The Group has offices in Dordrecht, Hamburg and Zug.
