Gasum is responsible for running the biogas production plant from the raw material to the upgraded biogas. Upgrading takes place in a water scrubbing facility before FordonsGas Sverige AB liquefies the biogas for regional distribution and compresses it for local distribution.

The liquefaction technology chosen means that the vehicle quality biogas is cleaned in principle to 100% methane. The gas is then cooled to just over -160C and liquefies in the process.

The biogas feedstock consists mainly of industrial residues from the food industry in Lidköping and surroundings.

The organically approved biofertilizer is sold to local farmers.

The construction project started in early 2010 and the plant supplied the first biogas in January 2011.
