Lohja biogas plant
Gasum’s biogas plant in Lohja is located in the area of the Munkkaa waste management center. The plant was commissioned n in January 2021.
Lohja biogas plant will process an annual total of 60,000 tonnes of biowaste and is expected to produce about 40 GWh of biogas for transport and industry and also 50,000 tonnes of organic fertilizers per year.
The Lohja biogas plant uses biodegradable waste from the Helsinki region as feedstock, which means that the recycled nutrients created in production at the biogas plant meet the criteria for organic fertilizers.
The project will enhance the growth of the Finnish biogas market and strongly promote the biogas. The job-creation impact of the Lohja project will be around 170 full-time equivalents of employment during the con-struction phase, while the permanent employment effect will be around 32 full-time equivalents.
The investment is significant for Gasum. The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment has granted Gasum €7.83million in ’Bioeconomy and clean solutions' key project support for increased biogas production.
