FinCo joins forces with Erasmus University Rotterdam

A unique opportunity in education. This autumn, our Rotterdam neighbour, Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR), is launching a new series of programmes aimed at the future leaders of the energy transition. The programme will be run by EUR’s business school, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM), one of Europe’s best institutes in this field. FinCo Group is delighted to be one of the 15 founding partners of this programme, which offers courses and specialisations at both bachelor’s and master’s levels, as well as to managers who have been in the industry for a while.

Anyone who has studied or been involved in the energy transition in recent years knows how incredibly complex this issue is and how important it is that different parties work together. RSM wants students and managers to not only gain knowledge about the energy transition, but to also be trained in an integral, comprehensive strategy and approach. So that they not only know about technological innovations, but also about legislation, finance, geopolitics, capital markets, human behaviour and social innovations. We need a wide-ranging knowledge on the matter in order to be able to implement the necessary changes in the forthcoming years.

A lot of attention will also be paid to the development of leadership skills, such as leading transitions, stakeholder management and communication. To ensure that these skills will have a broad base, RSM will be collaborating with Delft University of Technology and the other faculties of EUR.

Today’s leaders still have several years of being able to share their expertise before passing the baton to the next generation. We want to feed these young people with knowledge about science, public administration and business as quickly as possible.  While, at the same time, also learning from their opinions and ideas.

For FinCo Fuel, this offers a unique opportunity to share our own knowledge and experience as well as to gain new knowledge and experience. What’s more, it is a great way to keep in touch with precisely that young generation of talented transition experts, who can strengthen our sustainable organisation and take it forth into the (near) future. In addition to the above-mentioned comprehensive training programme, one of the other ambitions is to set up a community where knowledge can be exchanged and different generations can meet each other. We can’t wait.

Time profit

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.

An era of possibilities

Rotterdam, 21 July 2022

In the next few years, we must do everything in our power to reduce CO2 emissions worldwide. We want to be a symbol for the transition that alle energy companies must go through. The course has changed and our sustainable product portfolio is transforming rapidly. We have the people, the resources and the innovate power to make a difference and contribute to a more sustainable world. But we can’t do this alone.


A pioneering role with HVO

Rotterdam, 1 September 2022

To reduce CO2 emissions worldwide we are accelerating the use of sustainable energy carriers and phasing out fossil fuels. One the of the greatest fuels we use to reduce CO2 is HVO, a synthetic diesel, which is produced from the residue streams of the food industry or industrial processes. It is also a very sustainable fuel: it reduces CO2 emissions up to 89 percent and ensures clean combustion, both on land and water.
