Swedish Biogas International Västerås AB
Swedish Biogas International Västerås AB and its biogas plant is a close collaboration between Swedish Biogas International AB and local farmers.
The plant was built in 2013 and is a co-digestion facility for mainly manure and waste products from agriculture in the area. The produced biogas is upgraded to vehicle gas in a water scrubber facility, and routed via pipeline to nearby customers.
The existing biogas production in Västerås, run by the Svensk Växtkraft AB, had to be supplemented because of a growing market. This market expansion was carried out through an agreement with SBI Västerås where 3 million Nm3 of vehicle gas will be produced per year.
Organically certified bio fertiliser is allocated in collaboration with local farmers.
