Gasum commences planning work on third biogas plant in Sweden

Gasum Oy, the Finnish state-owned energy company, announced on Tuesday that it has commenced planning for a third biogas plant in Sweden, aimed at producing 133 GWh of biomethane annually from waste streams.

While a final investment decision (FID) has not yet been reached, Gasum emphasized that planning is progressing steadily to secure all necessary permits and finalize the land use plan in collaboration with the municipality, according to a company press release.

The proposed facility will be situated in Horby municipality in southern Sweden, designed to handle up to 500,000 tons of various raw materials per year, primarily residual products and agricultural waste. The project has received funding from the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency’s Klimatklivet investment programme and is projected to begin operations by the end of 2026.

Gasum is actively constructing two other biogas plants in Sweden. The first plant, located in Gotene, is scheduled to commence production by late 2024. Earlier this year, Gasum initiated on-site activities for a second project in Borlange following an FID in early February.

The overarching strategy of Gasum includes the construction of five plants across Sweden in the coming years, aiming to achieve a total renewable gas capacity of 7 TWh annually in the Nordic market by 2027.
