  • STX Group and Perpetual Next’s strategy works towards circularity and advancements in e-fuels and the increasingly dynamic carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) landscape

STX Group, a leading global firm in environmental commodities trading and climate finance, announced today a partnership with Perpetual Next Conversions, a Dutch biomethane plant developer and operator. The partnership aims to promote and develop opportunities for captured and liquified biogenic CO₂ within Europe. This collaboration marks a significant step to drive solutions for carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS), such as e-fuels production and alternative CO₂ utilization routes.

Organic waste streams are used to extract biogenic CO₂ and market it for application in industrial processes to maximize long-term sustainability and contribute to European decarbonization goals. The partnership is initially focused on the Benelux region and expected to be extended to the UK, the Nordics and Eastern Europe.
