Finland’s Gasum in domestic biogas deal

Finnish state-owned gas company Gasum said on Friday it had entered into a deal with the cleantech company Forchem to supply liquefied biogas (LBG) for the latter’s tall oil biorefinery in Rauma.

To remind, the two companies signed a liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply deal for the same refinery back in 2019.

Under the new deal, liquefied biogas will be 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, according to Gasum.

LBG is equal to LNG in terms of its properties and suitable for use as a road and maritime transport fuel and for industrial purposes.

By switching from LNG to LBG, industrial operators “can achieve significant cuts in greenhouse gas life-cycle emissions,” Gasum says.

Biogas is produced from feedstocks including biodegradable side streams of industrial and other enterprises as well as from consumer biowaste.
