Perpetual Next - Utilities


We create renewable heat, gas and electricity from locally sourced organic waste

The world needs robust technologies that empower communities to provide themselves with green decentralised products. We can help the utility sector to reduce their footprint by providing biomethane or one of our other renewable alternatives to fossil raw materials and fuels. The transition from fossil raw materials is very difficult because the carbon source in these materials is needed.

In this transition phase from traditional high emissions production to Net Zero, important decisions have to be made because it also effects the future of your company. At Perpetual Next, we know this is not a small task. Our technologies and our in-house knowledge combined with our network of partners enable us to decarbonise your business. Let us help you scale up quickly and make an impact for a sustainable future. 

We supply green gas as a direct substitute to the existing natural gas grid. Renewables are not that complicated.


Do you want to switch to biomethane or any of other renewable alternatives for fossil raw materials and fuels? Do you need the carbon source, but don’t want to stay with the fossil version?

We have developed multiple conversion sites, with implementations of specific solutions which answers the need for decentral renewable utility applications. Let’s partner up to support you and build a solution together. 

The goal in the Climate Agreement is to produce 2 billion m3 of green gas by 2030. With other parties, we are working to make green gas affordable and bring it to the market on a large scale.

Carbonisation and gasification

Joint Venture with Gasunie

Eemsgas, a 50%-50% joint venture with Gasunie, is in development. The joint venture focuses on the production and distribution of green gas. Instead of fossil raw materials, green gas is produced on the basis of natural raw materials, such as low-grade organic waste and residual flows.

In the Eemsgas project, Perpetual Next will build a 30 megawatt carbonisation, gasification and gas upgrading plant for the production of green gas at Chemie Park Delfzijl, part of Chemport Europe. Gasunie will take care of the distribution of the green gas, both to the neighboring chemical companies and to the national network.

Our examples that showcase different solutions are possible

Perpetual Next Lelystad

Landscaping and garden waste to heat

Our facility Perpetual Next Lelystad generates heat from landscaping and garden waste in the immediate vicinity of Lelystad. No higher-grade product can be made from this waste. Perpetual Next Lelystad is a supplier for Vattenfall and Ennatuurlijk. The heat system, with a capacity of 15 MWth, serves 5,500 household equivalents and six government buildings. This saves about 7.5 million Nm3 of fossil natural gas. In the future, even more households will be connected to the Lelystad heat network.

Perpetual Next Duiven

Residual streams to animal feed

At our production facility Perpetual Next Duiven, we upgrade organic, regional residual streams to a sustainable raw material for animal feed. Potato and carrot steam peels from the food industry enter the plant in liquid form. A special drying technique removes the moisture and what remains is starch in powder form that is sold to animal feed producers, who use it as a basis for their products.

Perpetual Next Moerdijk

Food waste to biogas

Perpetual Next Moerdijk is a recycling plant that allows us to upgrade food waste (such as products past their expiration date and kitchen waste) to biogas and (raw) materials. The plant has been built up in steps and continuously renewed since 2000 and has a robust group of suppliers and customers. The objective is to upgrade biogas to green gas to replace fossil natural gas in the near future, in addition to upgrading organic residual and/or waste streams.

Perpetual Next Ellesmere Port

Green gas from agricultural residues

Perpetual Next Ellesmere Port is completed in November 2021. The facility consists of an organic waste digester that produces 4 million m3 biogas per year from agricultural residues. The biogas is upgraded to green gas, a sustainable alternative to fossil natural gas, which is injected directly into Ellesmere Port's natural gas grid. The residual product from the biogas production (digestate), is used to make agricultural land more fertile.
