Bio-based welding-gas production facility to open in the Port of Amsterdam.

The new site will be located on the Australiëhavenweg in the port of Amsterdam. The facility is scheduled to become operational in 2020, once the development of the production plant (due to start imminently) has been finalised.

The new site will be dedicated to the production of bio-based welding gas, a fuel type commonly used in the construction and shipbuilding industries. The renewable variety of the fuel developed by Taronis Fuels, known as MagneGas, is an alternative to acetylene gas produced from several types of liquid waste.

The Amsterdam facility will initially be used for processing ethanol waste. MagneGas is regarded by numerous end users as significantly safer in terms of use, storage and transport than regular acetylene gas. Its use of ethanol waste brings additional environmental benefits.

Roon van Maanen, Port of Amsterdam’s Head of Circular and Renewable Industry: "Taronis Fuels is an asset to our port, also in terms of our goal of attracting biofuel producers as we work towards creating a zero-emission industry (…). Our focus on sustainability and our excellent links were critical factors in Taronis Fuels' decision to build  their new site right here in the port."
