Biokraft doubles its capacity to produce liquefied biomethane (Bio-LNG).
Biokraft has delivered its first batch of bio-LNG. The shipment consisted of 34 tons of bio-LNG to be used by trucks in northern Europe. A filled container holds 17 tons of bio-LNG which is enough for fossil-free driving with a fully loaded long-haul truck for approximately 50,000 kilometers.
Biokraft's biogas is 100 per cent fossil-free and produced by digesting collected food scraps and slaughterhouse waste from municipalities in Greater Stockholm. The newly built liquefaction plant is located directly adjacent to the digesters in Södertörn and converts biomethane into liquid through cooling. The unit has a production capacity of 220 GWh per year and is thus the world's largest (with a production capacity of 50 tons of bio-LNG per day). 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.
The Stockholm bio-LNG project started two years ago. The investment is approximately SEK 330 million and has been financed with equity, bond loans and government investment support from Klimatklivet.
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. We expect the facility to be transferred to regular production towards the end of the year.
