Västerås biogas plant

The Västerås biogas plant is the result of partnership between Gasum and a group of local farmers.

The plant was built during 2013 and is a co-digestion plant for the digestion of mostly manure and agricultural residues in the neighborhood. The biogas produced is upgraded to vehicle gas quality in a water scrubbing facility and transmitted via the gas pipeline to nearby customers.

The biofertilizer is returned to farmers, who are also partners.

Natural gas imports from Russia under Gasum’s supply contract has been halted
