Waste not want not – food waste used a fuel
Stockholm is in 2015 to get a biogas plant in Sofielund in Huddinge. Energy company Eon and Scandinavian Biogas namely signed an agreement for the delivery of over 4 million cubic meters of biogas per year, and the biogas will be supplied from the plant in Sofielund as Scandinavian Biogas plan to build.
The plant will mainly be supplied with food waste from Stockholm’s southern municipalities. The agreement means that an increased supply of locally produced biogas is ensured, and that the share of biogas in the vehicle gas supply Transport market of Stockholm, is growing.
– Increased production of biogas is of national interest, and deemed necessary if Sweden is to achieve its set carbon target, where Eon is a vital player in the market. In our cooperation we create synergies for both parties and we look forward with confidence for the future, remarked Michael Olausson (Vice President of Scandinavian Biogas)
