Project Description

Leveraging social and environmental impacts through transactions

Tallinn, Estonia

Established in 2019

Teaser of the company

Beyond the capabilities of a secured distributed ledger offered by the Blockchain (tamper-proof and immutability of the information), we are using public Blockchain networks to offer LNG stakeholders to create a digital asset associated with a specific volume of natural gas and concrete usages related to the carbon footprint (GHG emissions) of the gas, ESG, and diversion. Our solution gives a tangible value to intangible attribute in the gas industry, in the context of the social & environmental impacts of natural gas.

Hodnlg will test and validate the following blockchain-based solution in the scope of BlockStart:

Digitalized Biogas

We are selling a solution to boost biogas market for producers and distributors. IT costs 1125€/y/producer, plus 0,2/MMBtu. European market represents 17 783 enities producing 65 179 GWh, we get along more than 56M/year.

  • Starting from our HODLNG MVP for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), using the digital asset (DA) to introduce new features for biogas to reach out to SMEs
  • Tackling identified problems in the biogas industry with our DA which captures all information of a given volume of gas, associated with a producer with specific attributes, to track non-material value; and to trade, share, to report and verify
  • Engaging with biogas players, including SMEs, to facilitate the adoption of Blockchain technologies and simultaneously to foster the traction for alternative sources of natural gas production; within Blockstart framework
  • Deliver EU Green Deal 2030 expectations (at least 32% energy from renewables)
  • Positioning gas (fossil and biogas origination) in the European energy mix, with a biogas market share reaching 10%, as planned
  • Provide Guarantees of Origin: European standard for sustainable gas
  • Gas categorization (land-based input); quality and pressure, plug-in and injection into the pipeline network;
  • Volume identified; storage impediment & decentralization; proven gas characteristics;
  • Enhance transmission network: decentralization to Smart grid
  • Significant potential of biogas for grid balancing
  • Adaptation of the network to include more volume, and not losing the storage
  • Increase transparency and traceability: the proof of injection and the proof of withdrawal
  • Secure fair remunerations for all value chain players
  • New sources of revenue for all actors, including smallest entities
  • Profitability based on organic-matter (different pricing structure); including from tenders
  • Incentivize adoption of biogas by end-users

HODLNG digital asset reach 3D= digitalization; decentralization; decarbonization for biogas
