Visit to Scandinavian Biogas plant: the first industrial food waste based biogas plant in Stockholm County.


Tuesday 13th June – a technical visit and a business opportunity

Treating 60,000 tonnes of food waste per year, the plant has a capacity to generate over 80 GWh, corresponding to 8.8 million litres of petrol and enough to meet the annual fuel needs of 5,000 private motorists. At full capacity, the plant also produces 14,000 tonnes of dewatered bio-fertiliser.  Inaugurated in 2015, the facility is located at Södertörn, 20 minutes south of Stockholm City. It is a joint project with SRV återvinning AB, which is owned by five local municipalities, that represent a unique example of integrated waste management for sustainable biofuels production and the development of circular economy.

A unique experience to discover the most sustainable process for biofuels production.

Organised in cooperation with the Biogas Research Centre (BRC), as part of the EffiSludge for LIFE project, this technical visit offers to the EUBCE 2017 delegates a unique opportunity to discover, step-by-step, how waste can be turned into valuable products such as biogas and fertiliser.
