News & press

Product description

The Zeebrugge LNG Terminal is certified according to the ISCC framework, which allows the terminal to be part of a BioLNG supply chain and ISCC certified shippers to obtain a BioLNG certificate.

There are 2 ways to obtain BioLNG in the Zeebrugge Terminal:


1. Bring gas with a biomethane certificate to the terminal and convert it to LNG with a BioLNG certificate

This conversion is subject to the “mass balance principle” which means that:

    1. the biomethane which reaches the Zeebrugge Terminal via backhaul capacity in the
        Belgian Transmission grid,
    2. is liquefied and
    3. the BioLNG liquefaction capacity has been allocated to such shipper for the certificate
        transfer.

When the conversion into BioLNG is executed, you can:

    4. Store your BioLNG and
    5. Use your BioLNG for different applications

You can choose to take care of all steps in the BioLNG supply chain or only some.

Good to know

At the LNG terminal of Zeebrugge, two (re-)liquefaction units, referred to as "recondensers", are used in the process flow for regasification.
 
In those recondensers the natural gas is cooled down and liquefied, this technical liquefaction process allows terminal users to convert biomethane certificates into BioLNG certificates. The GHG emission related to the bioLNG process for 2024 is 0,227 gCO2eq/kWh (as audited under ISCC EU rules).
 
As the demand for converting biomethane certificates into BioLNG certificates might exceed the capability of the recondensers, a transparent and non-discriminatory demand procedure and allotment rule are required.
