BOC renewable industrial gas for F&B sector from 2023

BOC, a subsidiary of Linde plc, has announced a new power purchase agreement (PPA) with energy-from-waste facility Avertas Energy and Shell Energy that is set to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions nationally by 16%.Under the five-year agreement with Avertas Energy, BOC will purchase large-scale generation certificates from the Kwinana-based energy-from-waste facility starting 1 January 2023. Under the energy retail agreement with Shell Energy, BOC will start receiving electricity for its Kwinana and Canning Vale sites from mid-2022.

The PPA will enable BOC to support decarbonisation of Australia’s largest food and beverage manufacturers, along with other industrial customers, with BOC purchasing enough certificates that all carbon dioxide and liquid nitrogen supplied by BOC to the food and beverage sector can be produced by 100% renewable electricity starting from 2023.

John Evans, Managing Director, BOC South Pacific, said this was a significant step forward in achieving BOC’s sustainability goals to achieve a 35% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2028 and support long-term decarbonisation across its customer base.
