Natural gas is the lowest-emission fossil fuel. Substituting oil or coal with natural gas can help achieve significant emission cuts.
Liquefied natural gas and biogas can be used as substitutes for more polluting petroleum-based fuels for industries outside the gas pipeline network as well as for maritime and road transport. Read more about greenhouse gas emissions over the life cycle of biogas.
The combustion of natural gas, liquefied natural gas and biogas does not create any particulate or sulfur dioxide emissions.
The raw materials used in biogas production are waste-based feedstocks such as biowaste, wastewater sludge and organic side streams from industry and, at the Swedish plants, also field biomass. Raw materials are delivered to Gasum biogas plants where they are used in the processing of biodegradable waste, biogas production and the production and distribution of recycled nutrients. Read more about the biogas plants in Finland and in Sweden.
In addition, Gasum has the Biogas Label that communicates to consumers that the product or service was made with 100% Finnish and renewable biogas. The Biogas Label is a registered trademark owned by Gasum.
