The powerful company Biokraft is commissioning the world’s largest biomethane liquefaction plant and doubling its Bio-LNG production capacity.
The newly built liquefaction plant is located directly adjacent to the digesters in Södertörn and converts biomethane into liquid through cooling. The first batch of bio-LNG has already been delivered — two containers (34 tons in total) of bio-LNG, which will be used for the needs of freight transport in Northern Europe. This amount of biomethane is enough to drive fossil-free with a fully loaded long-haul truck for approximately 100,000 kilometers.
- Production capacity: 220 GWh per year (50 tons of bio-LNG per day).
- Terms of project implementation: 2 years.
- Cost: about 28 million euros.
- Raw material: digesting collected food scraps and slaughterhouse waste from municipalities in Greater Stockholm.
Please, note that the full material about this important event is available on the Sustainable Agribusiness Platform (SAF), for which our team participates in the preparation of materials.
The company’s potential market is significantly broadened towards heavy road transport, shipping and industry thanks to liquefaction. Bio-LNG has a high energy content per unit volume and can be transported long distances at a reasonable cost to meet a strong demand in Northern Europe.
Full capacity output
Today, the Stockholm bio-LNG project will be in the commissioning phase for some months while production is scaled, and functions and delivery parameters are tested. The company predicts that the facility will operate at full capacity by the end of the year.
