Mönsterås is positioned in Kalmar County, and is characterised by many agricultural amenities the place the manufacturing generates manure in massive portions which will restrict operations. Through the use of manure as feedstock for biogas manufacturing, a sustainable cycle is created whereas it permits the farmers to additional develop their operations.
Swedish Environmental Safety Company’s (Naturvårdsverket) Local weather Leap Initiative (Klimatklivet) granted the venture 154 million SEK in financial assist in 2021, which is throughout the framework of introduced progress and manufacturing capability targets for the 12 months 2024. The venture gives a superb charge of emission discount per invested SEK.
”We have now labored for a few years to discover a sustainable resolution for our operations because the manufacturing of manure has grow to be a limitation for us. The collaboration with Scandinavian Biogas brings us an answer that can handle the conventional methane emissions, whereas concurrently decreasing the carbon dioxide emissions within the transport sector. There shall be appreciable environmental advantages from the native manufacturing of meals, when taking the entire cycle into consideration,” says Olof Boson who’s a farmer and chairman of the board of Mönsterås Biogas.
The liquefied biogas will primarily be offered as gas to the transport sector (maritime and heavy transports) the place 120 GWh is the equal of 12 million liters of diesel. The refined biofertilizer will primarily be used within the native agricultural manufacturing with a purpose to preserve a sustainable cycle.
”It feels good to lastly have every thing so as and that we’ve got obtained inexperienced mild to begin the venture. The farmers want this biogas plant so as to have the ability to additional develop their operations and our clients in Europe are in nice want of fossile-free fuel”, says Michael Wallis Olausson, Chief Development Officer at Scandinavian Biogas.
The biogas venture in Mönsterås was initiated by native farmers in 2016, and Scandinavian Biogas bought concerned two years in the past. The events fashioned a collectively owned firm with the accountability to design, construct, and handle the deliberate biogas plant. Scandinavian Biogas owns an estimated 86 % of the manufacturing firm Scandinavian Biogas Mönsterås AB, whereas the remaining 17 % is owned by the native farmers by way of their firm Mönsterås Biogas AB.
The biogas venture in Mönsterås would be the first in line of the initiatives that we are going to develop in collaboration with native farmers. We imagine that native possession is essential, to make it possible for elements of the long run revenues additionally stay native.
“The advantages of liquefied biogas with manure as feedstock are apparent,and allow a inexperienced transition for domestically produced meals merchandise in addition to for heavy transports. That is one other essential step for us at Scandinavian Biogas in direction of our long-term imaginative and prescient of a complete manufacturing capability of three TWh by the 12 months 2030,” says Matti Vikkula, CEO of Scandinavian Biogas.
Boson provides, ”The manufacturing of manure has grow to be a limitiation for us, however this venture brings us an answer that can handle the conventional methane emissions of manure whereas concurrently decreasing the carbon dioxide emissions within the transport sector.”
The biogas plant shall be delivered by the Portuguese firm Efacec SA in consortium with the Swedish firm Multibygg AB. The ability for fuel improve and liquefaction shall be delivered by the Swedish firm Wärtsilä AB.
