Göteborg Energi biogas plant is now operational
GoBiGas, the world's first demonstration plant for large-scale production of biogas through the gasification of forest residues, is now operational.
The plant has been supplying biogas to the Swedish natural gas grid since 15 December.
'After intensive work with the commissioning of the plant over the past year, we have now reached an important milestone,' says project manager Freddy Tengberg. 'In addition, we are expanding the fuel handling to gain flexibility in our requirements for raw materials for the plant.'
The plant, which is the first in the world to combine large-scale gasification with methanation, has the capacity to supply about 15,000 cars or 500 buses a year with renewable transportation fuel.
