GIDARA Energy is a Dutch technology-based energy company focused on converting non-recyclable waste into syngas – a clean and versatile source of energy.
The company’s first plant, Advanced Methanol Amsterdam (AMA), will produce an average of 87.5 kilotons per annum (KTA) of renewable methanol from 175 KTA of local non-recyclable waste.
AMA includes a testing facility, knowledge centre, and full plant producing advanced methanol that meets the European biofuel mandate as well as Dutch legislation.
