Scandinavian Biogas gets $15 million boost to build another bio-LNG plant in Sweden

Sweden-based Scandinavian Biogas said it has secured about $15.1 million from the government to build a bio-LNG plant in southern Sweden.

The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency through Klimatklivet granted the company 154 million Swedish crowns ($15.1 million) in investment support for the bio-LNG project.

Scandinavian Biogas plans to build the bio-LNG plant in Skane’s Fagerhult in Orkelljunga municipality, about 500 kilometers south of Stockholm.

The gas would be produced by utilizing manure from animal farmers in the area. In addition to manure, the firm would use other residual products from agriculture and food production as well.

If the biogas producer takes a final investment decision before the end of 2023, production would begin in mid-2025 and contribute to estimated profitability in 2026, according to Scandinavian Biogas.

The firm expects the plant to have a capacity of 130 GWh, or the equivalent energy content of 13 million liters of diesel. The plant will also produce 200,000 tons of high-quality biofertilizer for the region’s agriculture.

Also, it estimates annual CO2 reduction to reach 53,000 tons.

Scandinavian Biogas said the project would now proceed with the usual preparations for investment decision, such as securing an environmental permit.

In December, Scandinavian Biogas won the same grant but for a bio-LNG production plant in Grimhult near Monsteras.

The firm set a long-term target to reach an annual production capacity of 3 TWh of biogas, mainly bio-LNG, in Europe by 2030.
