Sweden's largest energy companies is building the world's biggest biogas plant
Goeteborg Energi, one of Sweden's largest energy companies, is building the world's biggest biogas plant, with a capacity of 1,600 cubic meters per hour, local media reported on Friday.
The plant will start operating in December, with the capacity of 15,000 tonnes of fuel per year.
Goeteborg Energi chief executive Hans Malm said to TT news agency that demand for clean fuel for cars was such that five more biogas plants could be built in Sweden over the next five years.
Biogas is typically methane produced by the fermentation of organic matter including manure, wastewater sludge and municipal solid waste under anaerobic conditions.
Biogas use is increasingly popular because it does not increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
