Major Advancements in Nordic Biogas with New Biomethane and LCO2 Plant Plans

Swedish biogas company Biokraft has announced plans to construct a biogas plant that will produce an estimated 130 GWh of biomethane and 17,000 tonnes of liquid carbon dioxide (LCO2) annually.

Biokraft has secured a land agreement to build the facility at Perstorp Industrial Park in Perstorp, Sweden, with a completion target set for 2027.

This new plant will support Biokraft’s long-term objective of increasing its production capacity from the current 585 GWh per year to 3 TWh by 2030.

“We are very pleased to take another step towards our long-term goal and contribute to the green transition within the industry sector,” said Michael Wallis Olausson, VP Growth at Biokraft.

The plant will utilize approximately 300,000 tonnes of substrate per year, primarily sourced from manure and waste from the agriculture and food industries.

The same volume of processed biofertiliser will be returned to agriculture, replacing fossil fertilisers.

Biokraft also plans to connect the plant to the gas grid, facilitating the distribution of biogas to western Sweden and northern Europe.

Michael Cronqvist, Site Manager at Perstorp, highlighted biogas as a crucial element in Perstorp’s transition to renewable materials. “We believe that biogas production in Sweden needs to be increased fivefold to satisfy the industry’s needs, and this initiative is a step on the way,” he said.

Initially planned for another site, Biokraft relocated to Perstorp after consultations with local residents, the municipality, and the Perstorp Group.

Olausson emphasized the favorable conditions at Perstorp for building a biogas plant. “It is close to northern Europe, has good road connections, and is located in a landscape with ample manure and organic waste from surrounding farms,” he added.

“Now we have the opportunity to build a larger facility with better scalability and significantly better infrastructure.”

Sweden aims to produce 7 TWh of biogas through anaerobic digestion by 2030, with an additional 3 TWh from other renewable gas technologies.

Currently, Sweden has about 280 active biogas plants, contributing to the total of 370 active biogas plants across the Nordic region.
