Gasum kicks off construction of 120GWh biogas plant in Sweden

February 13, 2023 |

In Sweden, after a careful and thorough planning and permit process, Gasum is starting the construction work on its latest biogas plant project in the Swedish community of Götene. The plant will be producing 120 gigawatt hours (GWh) worth of liquefied biogas or LBG per year from early 2025 onwards.

Biogas is a fully renewable and climate friendly fuel, as it is produced using different types of organic waste. The Götene plant will utilize mainly manure as feedstock from the agriculture sector in the surrounding area. The plant will process approximately 400,000 tons of feedstock yearly.

In addition to energy, the plant will produce 350 000 tons of high quality environmentally friendly fertilizers, which are returned to the farmers providing the feedstock.

Gasum is investing nearly 54 million euros in the Götene plant, of which 15 million has been provided as a grant from the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency’s Klimatklivet investment program.
