Liquefaction plant

Liquefaction opens up other avenues for biomethane enhancement
The liquefaction of biomethane appears to offer an effective solution for the logistical constraints that arise in the absence of transportation network. In its liquid form, biomethane is easily transportable to its point of use.

Lidköping Biogas

The development of biogas as a vehicle fuel has taken another step. In Sweden, biogas is already an attractive alternative for light duty vehicles and busses. 

Liquified Biogas is a new and attractive fuel alternative for heavy duty vehicles.

 A plant in Lidköping, Sweden, is operational and produces Liquefied Biogas. This is one of the first plants in world.

The new plant is a joint effort for the companies Swedish Biogas International Lidköping AB, Göteborg Energi AB and the Municipality of Lidköping. The plant supply cars and trucks with renewable fuel.

Lidköping Biogas produces biogas in gaseous and liquefied state to heavy duty vehicles, busses and cars equalling the need of 6,000 cars or 200 trucks. The biogas production reduces the emissions of carbon dioxide from the transport sector by 16,000 tons per year.
