Finish energy company Gasum has entered into an agreement with the cleantech company Forchem for the delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to their tall oil distillery in Rauma, Finland.

The first LNG delivery will take place during September this year, Gasum said on Thursday.

LNG will be delivered to Forchem’s production site by tank trucks from Gasum’s LNG terminal in Pori, Finland. The LNG terminal is approximately 70 km from Forchem on the Finnish west coast. LNG will be received to Forchem’s receiving terminal, regasified and then used in Forchem’s production process.

Forchem supplies products to global players across a wide range of markets. The main characteristics of Forchem’s production is the principle of sustainable development and a minimal environmental footprint.

Risto Näsi, CEO of Forchem, said, “we chose LNG primarily because it minimizes our emissions, particularly sulphur emissions. We are also keen to evaluate the use of liquefied biogas (LBG) in the future as it would further reduce our carbon footprint.”

LNG is used to replace the use of petroleum-based fuels in industry, marine sector and heavy-duty road transport. Using LNG helps achieve significant cuts in particulate as well as sulphur dioxide, carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions. The use of LNG also enables a switch to liquefied biogas (LBG) without any additional investments, Gasum’s statement reads.
