Anyone can join the biogas cycle; municipalities, big industries and even your private household, and help shift the world from a linear to a circular economy, reducing CO2-emissions and helping to reach sustainability goals.
The biogas plant in Nymölla was built by Gasum in 2020 in partnership with Stora Enso, on whose pulp and paper mill site the plant stands.
The plant extracts the organic matter in the mill’s effluent and turns it into renewable biogas, which is then liquefied (LBG). The project shows how to utilize the advantages between the two industries in close cooperation.
The plant can produce as much fuel annually as around 200 trucks use in a year. Use of LBG as a heavy duty vehicle fuel enables a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by as much as 90% compared with a fossil fuel.
