“This has been a long-term successful co-operation between EEW Energy from Waste and AkzoNobel“, says Rolf Kaufmann, Commercial Director at EEW Delfzijl. „I really appreciate that we have chosen to continue our excellent and loyal partnership so that we can supply green energy from waste through to 2033.“

“Chemical Park Delfzijl produces ingredients for many products essential to our daily lives” says Knut Schwalenberg, Managing Director of AkzoNobel Industrial Chemicals. “The partnership with EEW provides a reliable supply of sustainable steam, to continue production while limiting carbon emissions in line with our vision for more sustainable chemistry.”

Horst Bieber, Technical Director at EEW Delfzijl added: “With the completion of our third combustion line in 2018, EEW Delfzijl will treat 576.000 tonnes of waste per year and is able to deliver more than 1 million megawatt hours of process steam to AkzoNobel. This allows us to further increase the supply of green steam to AkzoNobel and the Chemical Park in Delfzijl for a more sustainable chemical production.”

“Parts of the refuse derived fuel we utilize in Delfzijl are coming from the UK and made of municipal solid waste, which would otherwise be landfilled. Now, the steam supplied by EEW can be used to replace the steam produced from natural gas, helping to decrease carbon emissions”, added Director Kaufmann.
