Arkema S.A. (Colombes, France) has signed a long-term agreement with Engie S.A. (La Défense, Courbevoie, France) for the supply of 300 GWh/year of renewable biomethane in France. This represents one of the largest private biomethane deals in Europe to date.
This supply agreement of 300 GWh/year of renewable biomethane with ENGIE, and ongoing energy efficiency projects will enable Arkema to further reduce very significantly the carbon footprint of its bio-based high performance Rilsan polyamide 11 and Pebax Rnew elastomers.
“We are delighted to accompany Arkema – a historical client of ENGIE – in their sustainable transition journey with such a large green energy supply agreement. At ENGIE, we believe that biomethane will play an essential role in the European energy mix and will be a key vector for decarbonizing the energy usages of our clients. This landmark deal definitely represents a major boost in the energy intensive chemical industry and establishes further ENGIE as a reference biomethane player in Europe.”
Paulo Almirante, ENGIE Senior EVP in charge of Renewables, Energy Management and Nuclear Activities.
