The facility, which is the first in Sweden and one of the first in the world to produce liquefied biogas, “is part of the climate transition,” said Andreasson. “What we’ve done here in Lidköping makes ripples. First movers generate interest and inspiration to others,” she added.
This project has been awarded grants from the Swedish government’s Climate Investment Program (KLIMP). The biogas produced in Lidköping is enough to fuel 6,000 cars that drive 17,000 kilometers per year. This results in 16,000 tons of reduced CO2-emissions annually.
Around 30% of the fuel produced and upgraded to SS 155438 is delivered directly to two compressors from Fordonsgas Sverige AB (FGS), which fills mobile storage containers in one of six filling places. FGS distributes CBG to other filling stations in the region using mobile storage containers. There is also a public filling station on site where vehicles are able to refill CBG at 200 bar. As the demand for LBG increases in Sweden, CBG-production at Lidköping will decrease.
