Emerald Kalama Chemical BV announced that it has signed 15-year agreements with Rotterdam-based grid manager Stedin and energy supplier AVR that give a green light to begin construction of a steam grid in the Rotterdam Botlek.

Emerald Kalama Chemical BV, a division of Emerald Performance Materials, announced that it has signed 15-year agreements with Rotterdam-based grid manager Stedin and energy supplier AVR that give a green light to begin construction of a steam grid in the Rotterdam Botlek. Emerald Kalama Chemical is the first steam consumer to sign on to the steam grid.

“This project is totally aligned with the philosophy of our company and our commitment to reduce the impact of our operations on the environment,” said Brian Denison, vice president of Operations for Emerald Kalama Chemical. “In less than a decade, investments in operations have reduced our key emissions by more than 65% and reduced our consumption of fossil fuel-based utilities at Rotterdam and Kalama, WA. We are proud that we could be the first company in the Rotterdam Botlek to sign on to this important project. Our 15-year contracts with Stedin and AVR emphasize our long-term commitment to Rotterdam and will support our company’s growth plans.”

AVR will be the first to supply steam to the steam grid. The steam is produced in AVR’s Energy from Waste facility in Rotterdam-Botlek. Due to the biogenic content of the waste that is used to produce the steam, the output can be marked as “green.”
