Gasum boosting biogas production

Finnish state-owned energy firm and LNG supplier, Gasum, will invest 27 million euros ($29.5 million) to expand and improve its existing biogas plants in Sweden and Finland.

According to a statement by Gasum, the goal of the three projects is to increase biogas output by 60 gigawatt hours (GWh) per year in total as well as to enhance digestate processing for improved recycled nutrient output.

The first Investment includes an expansion of capacity of its Orebro plan in Sweden to increase output of compressed biogas (CBG) by 17 GWh per year as well as improvement in digestate processing.

Gasum plans to start construction work in the autumn of this year and is estimated to complete it by summer 2024.

In addition, Gasum will expand capacity of its Oulu plant in Finland to increase output of CBG by 23 GWh annually and improve digestate processing as volumes increase.

Construction work will begin in the autumn of 2023 and Gasum expects to complete it in spring 2024.

As per the third project, Gasum will install and upgrading unit at its Vehmaa plant in Finland in order to enable the plant to produce CBG instead of power and heat.

The plant’s output will be 20 GWh of CBG per year.

Gasum started construction work in May 2023 and expects to finalize the upgrade in early 2024.

The LNG and bio-LNG supplier says increasing output of existing biogas plants is part of its strategic goal to bring 7 TWh of renewable gas yearly to market by 2027.

Achieving this goal would mean a yearly cumulative carbon dioxide reduction of 1.8 million tons for Gasum’s customers, it claims.
