Biogas and liquefied biogas
Biogas is emission-free renewable energy, offering our customers a responsible and carbon-neutral energy alternative. Biogas can be used, for example, as fuel for transportation or in industrial use. Biogas can be fed into a gas pipeline network or converted into liquefied form (LBG).
Biogas can be produced, for example, from biodegradable waste from households and companies, waste water and agricultural manure.

Biogas use can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the entire life cycle by up to 90% compared with fossil fuel use.

Biogas can be liquefied into LBG which allows for transportation to destinations beyond the gas pipeline network. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas are interchangeable as they both consist mainly of methane. This means that the two gases can be mixed. The use of both LNG and LBG is one of the concrete actions that will take us towards a low-carbon future society.
