Gasum to supply LBG to Uddeholms

Finland-based Gasum said it would supply 250 tons of liquefied biogas (LBG) to Swedish tool steel producer Uddeholms for their sustainability week in mid-December.

Gasum said in a statement on Monday it would deliver LBG to Uddeholms’ plant in Hagfors, Sweden, which has “large energy consumption.”

The energy comes from a mix of different sources such as liquefied natural gas (LNG), electricity and other sources.

During Uddeholms sustainability week both the electricity and the gas would be switched to “even more sustainable options,” it said.

Replacing LNG, Gasum will supply about 250 tons LBG, or about 3.8 GWh.

However, this is not the first time that the Hagfors plant uses biogas in the production of steel.

During 2018 Gasum supplied biogas to the plant for one day as part of a pilot project and now the company expands the pilot to a week of biogas with “drastic reductions in carbon emissions.”

Growing biogas production

Gasum operates 17 biogas plants in Sweden and Finland.

By 2025, the energy company intends to make 4 TWh of biogas available on the market from the company’s own production and that of its certified European partners.

Gasum produces biogas from organic waste such as household biowaste, manure and agricultural, and food industry’s sidestreams.

The firm mainly supplies biogas to its network of LNG and LBG filling stations for vehicles.
