Milan, 6 February 2024 – MAIRE announces that NEXTCHEM (Sustainable Technology Solutions), through its subsidiary NextChem Tech, and ENGIE agreed to cooperate on the development and commercialization of an advanced biomethane technology to produce synthetic methane from dry biomass waste.

Under this cooperation agreement, NextChem Tech will act as strategic partner and co-developer in order to optimize, integrate, develop, and commercialize this advanced process using NEXTCHEM’s and ENGIE’s proprietary technologies. Once industrialized through the Salamandre project in Le Havre, in France, NextChem Tech will act globally as licensor of the integrated package on an exclusive basis.

We are proud to consolidate our strategic partnership with ENGIE by supporting its path towards decarbonization and accelerating the achievement of the bio-methane production targets set by the European Union.”
