Gasum receives investment grant from Swedish Environmental Protection Agency for biogas production from industrial waste waters

The Energy company Gasum is evaluating the possibilities to produce biogas at a large scale from industrial waste waters off the Stora Enso Nymölla Pulp and Paper plant in Sweden. The aim for Gasum is to produce biogas primarily for use in the transport sectors in Sweden. Gasum has been granted an investment subsidy for the Nymölla project of €12.4 million (SEK 121.5 million) by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency under the Climate Leap (‘Klimatklivet’) program. Gasum’s vision is to build a Nordic gas ecosystem where the circular economy is at the core.

Gasum is in the finishing stages of a study regarding the production of biogas from waste waters off the Stora Enso Nymölla Pulp and Paper plant in the south of Sweden. The aim for Gasum is to produce biogas that will be upgraded and liquefied for use primarily in the transport sectors in Sweden. Gasum foresees rapidly increasing demand for liquefied biogas in the Swedish heavy duty vehicle sector as well as in the maritime transport sector.

Gasum’s Nymölla project has been granted an investment subsidy of €12.4 million (SEK 121.5 million) by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency under the Climate Leap (‘Klimatklivet’) program.  

The total investment volume of the project is around €27 million and Gasum is now proceeding into the investment decision phase of the project.

”We’d like to thank the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency for the positive investment support decision. This will support our efforts to make the circular economy reality with the Stora Enso Nymölla Pulp and Paper mill. The biogas plant will be a sustainable solution for the processing of waste water”, says Markus Olsson, Managing Director of Gasum AB.

Gasum and partners process waste and produce biogas in Finland and Sweden. Gasum is the leading producer of biogas in the Nordic countries. Biogas is a domestic biofuel made from fully renewable raw materials and is a versatile energy source.

Renewing energy company Gasum develops Nordic gas market

Renewal is a key element of Gasum’s strategy. In the past few years, the company has grown from a Finnish natural gas company to a Nordic energy company building the LNG and biogas markets in the Nordic countries while at the same time looking after the competitiveness of natural gas in Finland. Good leadership and management, employee wellbeing and safety and security are important to Gasum. Gasum wants to develop these continuously together with the personnel. These themes have been adopted as focal areas in the company’s human resource management.

On November 9, 2017 a letter was sent by shop stewards of Gasum personnel groups to the shareholders and the Board of Directors of Gasum Ltd. The shop stewards acted independently in this and did not contact their respective personnel groups about the letter or its contents. In response to the views presented in the letter, Gasum has provided the shareholders with a report on the measures taken so far to develop good leadership and management and employee wellbeing.

An extensive workplace community survey will take place in the Gasum Group. The survey will be conducted by the consultancy company MPS during the final weeks of the year. Gasum management takes the concerns raised in the letter about the company’s workplace and cooperation atmosphere seriously and finds it very important to look into the matter as regards the entire Gasum Group.

Gasum will continue to use sewage sludge in biogas and recycled nutrients production

Gasum will continue to use sewage sludge from municipal wastewater treatment plants in biogas and recycled nutrients production in the future, too. The company currently processes around a quarter of the volume of sewage sludge from Finnish municipal systems. The company is investing in biomass processing solutions and subsequent treatment of digestate for the further refining of nutrients. The aim is to refine nutrient residues from biogas production for purposes such as industrial process needs, creating products such as nitrogen nutrient solutions, and to serve the needs of soil conditioning and agriculture even better. Biogas production is a quick and efficient way of implementing the circular economy where the value of side streams and biowaste can be maximized as energy and organic nutrients. Biogas is used for heat and electricity production in industry, homes and transport.

The feedstocks base used by Gasum in biogas production is already extensive at the moment. Gasum processes a significant proportion currently estimated to be a little under a quarter of the total volume of sewage sludge from Finnish municipal systems. Sewage sludge is and will remain an important feedstock in biogas production. Gasum’s network of several plants enables the centralization of the various types of biomass fractions to specific biogas plants. Demand for organic nutrients is evolving rapidly in a variety of industrial sectors. In cooperation with various actors, Gasum is expanding the opportunities for the utilization of digestate in its production network.

Gasum will continue to use sewage sludge in biogas and recycled nutrients production in the future, too. Sewage sludge undergoes sanitization in the industrial biogas process, destroying any pathogens. Biogas plants using sewage sludge have introduced new processing techniques to be able to refine digestates obtained from sludge into more advanced recycled nutrient products. Wastewater treatment plant processes will also have a key impact on sewage sludge quality in the future.

”The rapid changes in the market situation of recycled nutrients and application difficulties caused by rainy conditions make the situation challenging, and major efforts are being made to develop solutions. For example, in Sweden there is the Revaq certification system for sewage sludge to ensure the quality of recycled fertilizers, which has improved the acceptability and quality of fertilizer use of nutrients produced from sludge. Work to develop a similar quality system has now been launched between actors in the sector in Finland to ensure the quality of recycled fertilizer and nutrient products from biogas production. We’re going to invest in sludge processing solutions and increased efficiency of nutrient residue processing in Finland,” says Ari Suomilammi, Director, Biogas Production and Sourcing, from Gasum.

Biodegradable waste fractions, side streams from food and other industry and various sludges are currently the most important feedstocks in Finnish biogas production. In the future, for example, biomass side streams from agriculture and industry will play key roles in the expansion of biogas production. The circular economy targets set by the EU provide increasing steering towards ways of processing sludges and biowaste where the benefits obtained from side streams are fully utilized. The value of the energy contained in biowaste and sewage sludge is maximized in the transport use of biogas.
