Biogas produced at the plant is transmitted via a local gas pipeline to the CHP engine of an energy company located a few kilometers away where the gas is used to generate electricity and heat.

The plant's sanitized digestate as well as the solid digestate obtained from the centrifuges is used as a fertilizer product in agriculture. Some of the reject water obtained from the centrifuges is used as dilution water at the plant's feedstock reception but also utilized as a wastewater purification facility nutrient in pulp industry.

The Kuopio biogas plant is certified in accordance with ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and ISO 50001 requirements. Compliance with quality, environment, occupational health and safety, and energy management standards will improve Gasum’s competitiveness and also benefit customers. Read more >
