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

Jaa:

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.
