Gasum biogas plants in Nordics

Gasum owns a nationwide network of biogas plants. Our local biogas plants provide services related to biodegradable waste processing, biogas production and production and distribution of recycled fertilizers.

Gasum’s objective is to actively develop the Nordic gas ecosystem. The company has many biogas plants projects ongoing, for example in Götene in  Sweden.

In addition to Finland, Gasum has expanded its biogas production in Sweden and is one of the biggest producers of biogas in the Nordic countries.

Biowaste and sewage sludge transport in Uusimaa outer zone cities of the Helsinki Metropolitan Region fueled by locally produced biogas

From the beginning of October 2021, six cities in the outer zone of Uusimaa – Hanko, Hyvinkää, Lohja, Loviisa, Porvoo and Raasepori – will use vehicles fueled by low-emission biogas to transport wastewater plant sewage sludge as well as biowaste collected by waste management company Rosk’n Roll Oy Ab to the Gasum biogas plant network where it will be used as raw material.

The annual total of around 30,000 tonnes of sewage sludge and biowaste will help to achieve an annual carbon dioxide emission reduction of up to 7,000 tonnes, which means the same as the annual emissions of more than 3,000 passenger cars. Fueled by Gasum’s renewable liquefied biogas, the trucks will help the cities to move towards their climate targets and reduce their carbon footprint significantly. The switch to biogas in transport will cut vehicle carbon dioxide emissions by up to 226 tonnes at the annual level – an amount corresponding to the annual emissions of almost 100 passenger cars. Creating more environmentally friendly permanent operating models is at the core of the cities’ strategy. The role of frontrunners in climate action includes supporting residents’ sustainable lifestyles and promoting the circular economy and carbon-neutral deliveries.

“Our cooperation with Gasum is part of our strategy to advance our climate program and act as frontrunners in climate action. At the same time, we’re promoting the circular economy as we’re able to fuel our deliveries with renewable biogas produced from biowaste and sewage sludge collected from the Uusimaa region,” says Jukka-Pekka Ujula, Mayor, City of Porvoo.

“100% renewable biogas is an alternative for reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Biogas use cuts the fuel’s lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% and generates only a fraction of local emissions compared with conventional fuels, which improves urban and regional air quality,” says Anniina Hiltunen, Sales Manager, Biowaste, Gasum.

It’s great that more and more actors want to switch to using environmentally friendly gas-fueled vehicles. Using gas as a fuel reduces transport emissions while at the same time providing enterprises with a competitive advantage. Demand for sustainable supply chains is growing, and responding to related customer needs promotes both business and sustainability targets,” says Juha-Matti Koskinen, Sales Manager, Heavy-Duty Transport, Gasum.

Gasum’s expanding gas filling station network opens up opportunities for actors to switch to gas in their logistics. Gasum currently has around 100 gas filling stations in the Nordic Countries, with around 30 of these serving heavy-duty vehicles. Gasum recycles an annual total of around 500,000 tonnes of biomass into biogas, a low-emission fuel for land and maritime transport as well as industry. In addition to biogas, Gasum plants produce a variety of recycled nutrients for agricultural and industrial uses.

Further biogas production investment support proposal by the Swedish government

On Friday 17[th] September, the Swedish government announced a biogas production investment support of 500 MSEK by 2022, followed by 700 MSEK 2023-2024 is proposed in the autumn budget this year. It is suggested that the monetary support will continue yearly until 2040.

Arla in Sweden has now together with Gasum decided to expand the current partnership that will benefit the biogas production and use in Sweden the following years. In essence, the partnership includes collecting manure in order to produce biogas and bio-fertilizer. In the end, this means more biogas to the traffic segment.

In 2019, Arla began a biogas revolution. Today they have 10 biogas trucks, with additional three new ones underway in 2021. In total, they will drive about 250 000 km per year. A mileage that would have required 1,000,000 liters of diesel. Using liquefied biogas instead of diesel will lower Arla’s emissions extensively.

One of Gasum's planned major investments in the production of liquid biogas is in Götene, where manure is intended as the primary raw material. The plant, with a production capacity of 120 GWh/a has received support via Klimatklivet, a government investment support that the government also announced on Friday to expand.

-Gasum sees the collaboration with Arla as a crucial part in realizing the potential that biogas has in Sweden. Biogas is one of the very best forms of renewable energy because it is the textbook example of circularity. The clear signals that the government is now giving are very positive for the industry, the climate and Gasum. Further planned investments in the coming years to gain access to biogas, says Johan Grön, Vice President, Biogas.

Gasum and Stora Enso set an example in circular economy with biogas plant at Nymölla mill

Gasum and Stora Enso have signed a contract to build a biogas plant at Stora Enso’s Nymölla paper mill in Sweden. The plant, built and operated by Gasum, will turn the mill’s waste water effluent into renewable energy, liquefied Biogas (LBG). The expected LBG production of the plant is 220 MWh per day. Start-up is expected during 2020.
