Bio-markets that don't yet exist

The energy system of the future consists of all kinds of innovative solutions. These innovations differ per market segment and mode; road traffic requires different solutions than shipping and air transport. We therefore look at new sustainable feedstocks, as well as ground breaking conversion technologies to convert these feedstocks into various suitable energy carriers. That is why we are not only looking at liquid fuels, but also at hydrogen and electricity.

We do not want to exclude any feedstock, technology or energy carrier in advance. We are always curious.

As a company with leading knowledge and expertise, we conduct research and testing on biofuels ourselves, to bridge the policy-technology gap. Only then can we say: ‘We’ve tested the feedstock or fuel with our own innovative resources and partners, and these our are findings. What have we learnt? How can we move forward?’


Our Sourcing & Sustainability Manager Ratna Nataliani explains: ‘When we assess a new feedstock, we look into it beyond the environmental aspects or guidelines from voluntary schemes. We take a closer look at the legal, economic and social impacts of each feedstock. We ask ourselves again and again: Is this form of energy really a residue stream? Once we have a reasonably clear idea about the feedstock, and a green light from our Sustainability Board, we commence this quest of the feedstock or the feedstock-based final products.'

There are several reasons why methanol is interesting for FinCo and the markets we serve. First off: methanol is a liquid. This means that it fits perfectly into our existing logistics system. Secondly, you can make methanol from almost any residue stream you can think of, so the feedstocks are always available. In addition, methanol’s production process is relatively simple and requires relatively little energy. And because you make it from sustainable feedstocks, the product has a very low carbon footprint, with savings up to 80 to high in the 90s percent. So when we’re talking about methanol, we’re always talking about bio-methanol.
