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.


Gasum is launching the GasumHackathon to harness biogenic carbon from biogas plants

Gasum is launching an open innovation competition together with the BioEconomy Business Accelerator BioPaavo by JAMK University of Applied Sciences and growth company consultancy Kasvu Open. We’re looking for solutions and partners to utilize the biogenic carbon dioxide generated as a side stream from the biogas upgrading process in Gasum’s biogas plants in Finland and Sweden.

Gasum currently operates a network of nine biogas plants and two upgrading plants in Finland as well as seven biogas plants in Sweden. In addition, Gasum is developing several biogas plant projects in the Nordic countries.

Gasum’s biogas plants presently have a production capacity of approximately 800 GWh of biogas each year. Biogas use can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% compared with fossil fuels.

As a side stream, carbon dioxide (CO2) is also produced during the decomposition process. Gasum is now looking for solutions and partners to utilize this biogenic CO2 stream from the production of biogas. Gasum produces annually up to 114 000 tons of biogenic CO2 in the biogas upgrading process, of which nearly one third is in high concentration (>95% CO2).

Improving sustainability of biogas even further

Unlike CO2 from fossil fuels, biogenic CO2 from biogas plants originates from the decomposition of organic wastes and side-streams and is not considered a greenhouse gas emission. The biogenic CO2 from biogas upgrading is today released into the atmosphere but capturing it could even further improve the sustainability of biogas.

Gasum is especially looking for a partner (a company or a consortium) with near commercial solutions and interest to take the lead in creating value from the biogenic CO2 produced at Gasum biogas plants. With the winning team(s) of the Hackathon, depending on the maturity of idea and feasibility of the business case, Gasum is willing to continue, for example, with commercial negotiations and joint feasibility study or basic engineering.

Investing strongly in biogas in the coming years is part of Gasum’s strategy to help our customers move towards a carbon neutral energy future. Read more about the benefits of biogas >

Application period for the Gasum Fund research grants 2023 open until 12 February

Gasum supports research and development in the gas sector through the Gasum Fund which is one of the special funds run and administered by the Finnish Foundation for Technology Promotion (TES). The application period for 2023 is now open and will close 12 February 2023.

Grants can be provided for research into the value chains of renewable gases, especially in connection with fighting climate change and the energy transition, such as Power-to-Gas value chain or biogas value chains, gas logistics or regulation.

In 2022, the Gasum Fund distributed a total of 74,960 euros in grants to seven researchers. The Gasum Fund has been providing grants since 2005.

Grants are provided from the Gasum Fund to post-graduate students for doctoral dissertation work. In exceptional cases, funding may also be provided for Master's theses.

Applications are submitted via the TES portal and are evaluated by the Fund's advisory committee, which includes representatives from Finnish Universities, TES as well as Gasum.

Gasum expands certification of its Finnish and Swedish biogas plants

Gasum’s biogas plants and LNG terminals were externally audited in September of 2022 and certifications were renewed and expanded at the end of the year. The Gasum Group holds multi-site certificates, which means that all biogas plants are included in one certificate, instead of certifying each plant individually.

Gasum’s operations are certified in accordance with quality (9001), environment (14001) occupational health and safety (45001), as well as energy management (50001) requirements. The 2022 certifications expanded the previous certification to cover all seven Gasum biogas plants in Sweden as well as the Finnish biogas plant in Lohja.

In addition to the biogas plants, all Gasum LNG terminals are certified according to the quality (9001), environment (14001) and energy management (50001) standards.

Certification ensures responsibility

For customers, certification is a guarantee that Gasum operates in accordance with strict harmonized requirements and is committed to responsibility in all operations. Public and corporate procurement and partnerships increasingly require certified systems.

Besides ISO certificates, biogas has been awarded the Nordic Swan ecolabel in Finland. The ecolabel guarantees that the production of Gasum’s biogas is sustainable and traceable and uses fully renewable raw materials.

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

Gasum and Stora Enso have innovated a smart way to produce liquefied biogas using the wastewater effluent from Stora Enso’s pulp and paper mill in Nymölla, Sweden. The investment is the first of its kind and has already inspired others to take a step into the circular economy. The expected LBG production of the plant is 220 MWh per day.
