Gasum, a leading Nordic energy company, and the Norwegian Road Transport Association (NLF) have officially entered into a strategic cooperation agreement aimed at advancing the role of biogas in Norway's green energy landscape.
The collaboration, effective from 1 January this year, seeks to position biogas as a prominent solution in the ongoing green transition, with a focus on replacing fossil diesel.
Local NLF members and associated companies can also enhance their biogas understanding by inviting Gasum to meetings, according to the company.
Gasum said it will actively share insights on biogas as a sustainable transport fuel. The collaboration involves advocating for improved biogas framework conditions in Norway, engaging with truck suppliers, and participating in events to promote biogas as a green solution.
“Under this cooperation agreement, NLF and Gasum aim to highlight biogas as one of several green energy solutions in the green transition. This will happen by promoting biogas and its benefits to replace fossil fuel,” said Kjell Olafsrud, marketing director at NLF.
“Biogas is the optimal choice for heavy-duty transport, providing a competitive and proven technology that helps logistics companies to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Compressed biogas is quick to refuel, making it excellent for local distribution and logistics. Liquefied biogas, on the other hand, offers a high range between refuelings. As of today in Norway, approximately 2,600 trucks use biogas on the roads, with 600 trucks running on liquefied biogas,” added Jogeir Munkeby, sales manager, Traffic Norway, Gasum.
