Norway's Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre visited Skogn
Biokraft Skogn is one of the world's largest plants for liquefied biogas. In connection with the fifth anniversary of the first delivery of liquefied biogas, the plant was visited by Norway's Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.
Biokraft Skogn is one of the world's largest plants for liquefied biogas, also known as LBG or Bio-LNG. This year marks five years since the first delivery of liquefied biogas left Skogn, and in connection with this, the plant was visited by the Norwegian Prime Minister, Jonas Gahr Støre.
"Skogn is one of Europe's most visited biogas plants, but it is not common for the Prime Minister to stop by! For us, it was a great opportunity to show the facility and highlight the substantial role biogas can play in the green transition," says Håvard Wollan, VP Business Area Norway and VP Markets about the visit.
Biokraft Skogn receives more waste and by-products from the Norwegian farming industry than any other biogas plant, in 2023 about 70,000 tonnes. The fact that the production is ISCC certified ensures traceability throughout the production chain. The Prime Minister was given a guided tour of the plant, where he met all the employees at various stations and was given a more detailed explanation of the processes behind the production of liquefied biogas.
"It is very motivating that the Prime Minister during his visit emphasizes the importance of us at Biokraft, together with other Norwegian players, being pioneers in the green transition. In an interview with local media afterwards, he called us 'role models for the world' and that is of course extremely gratifying!", Håvard continues.
