Nordic Ren-Gas Oy has received a funding of EUR 1.5 million from Ilkka Herlin’s investment company
Ren-Gas is a sustainable energy developer. Ren-Gas is building a decentralized clean P2X gas production and distribution network in Finland for the heavy transportation sector. Ren-Gas accelerates the cost-effective reduction of CO2 emissions in the transport and energy sectors. The planned projects will attract significant industrial investments and increase Finland’s energy self-sufficiency.
Nordic Ren-Gas Oy is a start-up company founded in July 2021 which develops and delivers a decentralized hydrogen and P2X methane production and distribution network in Finland for the heavy transportation sector. During the autumn, the company has actively progressed its first P2X gas production projects together with Finnish energy companies. Ren – Gas has received a growth funding of EUR 1.5 million from Ilkka Herlin’s investment company to support its strong growth.
Nordic Ren-Gas Oy develops and delivers hydrogen and P2X methane production projects. The company aims to achieve 300MW of production capacity for its P2X methane projects by 2030. Renewable fuels produced by Ren-Gas will reduce the use of fossil fuels in heavy transportation by approx. 250 million litres per year, corresponding to about one-fifth of fuel consumption in this sector. In addition, the waste heat generated in the P2X production process produces low-cost, carbon dioxide-free district heating, which reduces emissions in the energy sector. In total, Ren-Gas’ projects will reduce Finland’s carbon dioxide emissions by more than one million tonnes per year.
Ren-Gas will procure 1,200 MW of new domestic wind power as an energy source for its production facilities. Wind power is used to produce the so-called green hydrogen by electrolysis. The green hydrogen is then combined with carbon dioxide captured from an industrial process, thus, producing renewable gas fuel for the transportation sector. The operations of Ren-Gas’ production facilities will be optimized in the heating, electricity, and fuel sectors, which will enable low production costs and a competitive price for P2X-fuels.
“P2X gas fuels are an essential part of the solution in the fight against climate change and will become a major means of reducing emissions as societies strive for carbon neutrality. The technology needed to produce P2X gas fuels is available, and renewable P2X gas can be produced competitively today. Ren-Gas’s team is an absolute leader in its field. This growing team will accelerate the production and introduction of competitive P2X gas fuels in Finland, which will contribute to achieving Finland’s carbon neutrality goals, ”commented Ilkka Herlin, Member of the Board of Nordic Ren-Gas.
“Our business model has been very well received, and our first projects are progressing at a rapid pace. It is great to get Ilkka involved in Ren-Gas, and with this significant investment we can further accelerate our project development in Finland, ”said Saara Kujala, CEO of Nordic Ren-Gas.
Ren-Gas is a clean energy developer that will build a decentralized clean P2X gas production and distribution network in Finland for heavy transportation. Renewable fuels produced by Ren-Gas will reduce the use of fossil fuels in the heavy transportation sector by about 250 million liters per year, corresponding to about one-fifth of the total fuel consumption. The resulting clean fuel can reduce more than one million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year in the transport and energy sectors. Ren-Gas will procure more than 1,200 MW of new domestic wind power as the energy source for its P2X fuels.
