Date: 2021-04-07
Helsinki-headquartered biogas specialist Gasum reports Turku biogas plant has delivered its first shipment of liquefied biogas to the Finnish Border Guard (Coast Guard) in Helsinki. An additional shipment of liquefied biogas will be will be delivered to Helsinki in the coming weeks from Gasum's Risavika production plant in Norway.

The Finnish government is aiming to make Finland carbon-neutral by 2035. Achieving this target will require significant emission reductions in both road and maritime transport. The use of biogas can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90 pct, making it the cleanest marine fuel available. Liquefied biogas can be used in the same applications as liquefied natural gas (LNG) as they can be mixed with each other and used simultaneously or alternately as fuel for the same ship.

Gasum,Forchem Oy
Date: 2020-03-23
In Helsinki, Finnish energy company Gasum has entered into an agreement with the cleantech company Forchem Oy for the supply of liquefied biogas (LBG) for the Forchem tall oil biorefinery in Rauma, Finland. Forchem switched to using liquefied natural gas (LNG) in 2019.

Forchem supplies products for global actors operating in many different markets. The company's operations are characterized by the principles of sustainable development and minimized environmental impacts. The liquefied biogas (LBG) is received at the Forchem reception terminal, vaporized and used in the company's production processes. The switch from using LNG to using LBG can be made without any additional investments.

Liquefied biogas (LBG) is equal to liquefied natural gas (LNG) in terms of its properties and suitable for use as a road and maritime transport fuel and for industrial purposes. LBG is a renewable fuel that can be distributed by using the existing LNG infrastructure. Biogas is produced from feedstocks including biodegradable side streams of industrial and other enterprises as well as from consumer biowaste.
