Skangas, part of Gasum group, delivered liquefied biogas (LBG) to Swedish tool steel manufacturer, Uddeholm’s production plant from its parent company Gasum Group’s Lidköping biogas facility.
Uddeholm is now testing liquefied biogas (LBG) in its production after it replaced heavy fuel oil with liquefied natural gas (LNG) four years ago.
LBG can replace LNG and can be used directly in the same processes as that both gases consist mainly of methane, they are interchangeable and thus the same LNG supply chain can be used.
Skangas said in its statement that Uddeholm aims to further cut its CO2 emissions by changing natural gas with biogas.
“The fact that Uddeholm wants to test LBG directly in its production shows that investment in infrastructure linked to natural gas and biogas is the right way to go green. The same infrastructure can be used without any modifications for the most environmentally friendly of the fossil fuels, that is, natural gas, as well as for biogas, which is 100% renewable,” says Tommy Mattila, director, sales and marketing, from Skangas.
Liquefied biogas (LBG) is similar to liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a product. LBG is produced through the processing of various types of organic waste.
