Green gas to enter Gasunie's high pressure pipeline for first time.

Natuurgas Overijssel (a partnership between ROVA and HVC-groep) is to begin producing green gas. Enexis will manage the low-pressure transport and Gasunie will feed it through its high-pressure pipeline. It will be the first time that green gas has been fed directly into the national gas transmission grid represents a key step in making the Dutch natural gas system more sustainable.

Natuurgas Overijssel is also building a gasification plant where organic household waste will be converted into biogas. The gas will be upgraded to natural gas quality and taken directly into Gasunie's high-pressure pipeline system via a supply pipe. The plant will produce over 2 million cubic meters of green gas per year, enough for 1,000 households. It will also be possible to run vehicles on organic household waste, which will in turn reduce C[O.sub.2] emissions by some 4,500 tons per annum. Construction of the plant, laying of the supply pipes and the building of the research facilities will start shortly. The plant is expected to be operational by the end of 2009.
