Empyro has broken ground on its pyrolysis oil production plant in the Netherlands & Friesland Campina signed a long-term contract for the purchase of this oil
Once construction is complete, expected for the end of this year, production capacity at the plant will be gradually ramped up to more than 20 million litres of pyrolysis oil per year. This oil is enough to replace 12 million m3 of natural gas, the equivalent annual consumption of 8,000 households. By opting for this fuel, Friesland Campina is scaling up the share of renewable energy and the carbon emission at the Borculo plant will be reduced by 15%. The use of renewable energy is part of the company’s sustainability goals as set out in route2020.
