Gasum launches new biogas plant in Finland

LNG supplier Gasum said it has opened another biogas plant in Finland to cater to an increasing demand for the fuel in road transport.

The Lohja plant uses biodegradable waste from the Helsinki region to produce renewable biogas and organic recycled fertilizer suitable for organic farming, the firm said in a statement on Wednesday.

Gasum says demand for renewable biogas is constantly growing and with it the need for organic waste suitable for use as a biogas feedstock.

The Lohja biogas plant will process around 60,000 tonnes of biomass each year and produce 40 GWh of biogas. The amount is equivalent to the annual consumption of 4,000 cars, according to Gasum.

Gasum now has a total of 17 biogas plants in Finland and Sweden and is one of the largest biogas producers in the Nordic countries.

Earlier this spring, Gasum opened the Nymolla plant in Sweden. Located next to Stora Enso’s pulp mill, the Nymolla plant uses process water from the mill as a feedstock and can produce 80 GWh of liquefied biogas.

In addition, Gasum is also building an industrial-scale (120 GWh/year) manure-based biogas plant in Gotene, Sweden. The plant is scheduled for completion in early 2023.

The company will also soon launch a new LNG and LBG filling station in Sweden, adding to the sixteen stations it already operates in the country.
