-Partnership for Plastic Syngas Power Plant Project in South Africa

Kibo Energy PLC, a multi-asset energy development company positioned to address acute power deficits in Sub-Saharan Africa and the UK, has announced a partnership with Industrial Green Energy Solution( IGES) for the development of a new 2.7 MW plastic syngas power plant project in South Africa.

Kibo Energy will own 65% shares in the project, whose overall goal is to generate greener energy derived from non-recyclable plastics, while IGES will own the remaining 35%.

The waste items will be turned into crucial clean energy after being subjected to high temperatures to manufacture high-grade syngas – a process that drives engines to generate electrical and thermal energy. Bioethanol-production – Engineering-polymers

Following the company’s coal divestment, Kibo Energy CEO Louis Coetzee expressed his delight at having signed its first waste-to-energy PPA, which coincides with the company’s aim of pushing sustainable energy in the African market. The plastic syngas power plant project in South Africa is the first in a series of waste-to-energy initiatives in the Firm’s pipeline, and the company is happy to have collaborated on it with its partner, IGES.

Implementation and expectations of the project

The project, the financial close and construction of which is scheduled respectively for Q3 and Q4 2022,  will be developed by Sustineri Energy. Lesedi, a South African (Level Three B-BBEE) Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) company has been appointed as the projects Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) and Operations and Management (O&M) contractor.

The plastic syngas power plant project in South Africa is expected to be commissioned 11 to 14 months from the day the construction works begin.

An Industrial Business Park Developer will run the power plant, which will provide baseload power over a 10-year take-or-pay Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

The thermal energy generated may be sold directly to industrial park clients.

-Versalis: the production of bioethanol up and running at Crescentino

Versalis, Eni’s chemical company, announces today that it has begun the production of bioethanol from lignocellulosic biomass at Crescentino (Vercelli).

The plant, which was acquired in 2018, has been overhauled thanks to major investments and has started the production of advanced bioethanol, in compliance with the European legislation for the development of renewable energy RED II, as it is derived from raw materials that do not interfere with the food chain.

The bioethanol, produced using Proesa® technology, one of the world’s most innovative industrial-scale biomass chemistry technologies, is ISCC-EU* certified and will be used to formulate gasoline with a renewable component.

The plant is capable of processing 200,000 tonnes of biomass per year, with a maximum production capacity of approximately 25,000 tonnes of bioethanol per year. Following an initial test production run in recent weeks, the plant is now working at a progressive speed in order to fine-tune processes. Since July 2020, Crescentino has also been producing Invix® hand and surface disinfectant, a “medical device” made using bio-based ethanol as active ingredient.

The Versalis plant at Crescentino is an example of sustainable initiative and circularity: its energy supply is self-sustaining due to the production of renewable electricity and steam from the thermoelectric power plant, which is fed with short supply chain biomass and the lignin co-produced by the process. A complex water treatment plant also enables the production of biogas, which in turn is used to produce steam. The plant is also able to recycle the water used, thus drastically reducing consumption.

Adriano Alfani, CEO of Versalis, said “Starting with the industrial production of advanced bioethanol using Proesa® technology is an important step for Crescentino, a one-of-a-kind plant that further strengthens our strategy to develop chemicals using renewable energy to improve sustainable mobility, in line with Eni’s energy transition strategy. For Versalis, innovation and technological development are essential components for accelerating the development of increasingly sustainable chemicals.” Bioethanol-production – Engineering-polymers
