Press release from: BIOGAS-UNIT.com

By utilizing its waste into electricity with the help of biogas technologies, Stockholm has received a title of “Ecological capital of European Union” in 2010.

City’s waste disposal infrastructure has multiple levels: containers for various types of wastes are located by Stockholm’s residential areas, few times per day the wastes are transported into underground bunkers where the utilization process begins.

Biogas, produced from organic waste and sewerage, is converted into electricity and biomethane with the latter one being supplied into the grid.

As “Fortum’s” representative Yens Burns noted, electricity used for conditioning the temperature inside the buildings in Stockholm is produced exclusively by the city waste-disposal system.

Yens Burns is convinced, implementation of the integrated solution for production of ecologically clean energy and city waste disposal has been possible due to task-oriented management of the municipal development.

In 2010 Ukrainian energy companies and large agricultural holdings have also invested in production of biomethane. Ukrainian subsidiary company of international manufacturer of biogas plants ZORG, “Zorg Biogas Ukraine” is in the process of construction of one of the largest biogas projects in Babyno (Rivne region, Ukraine) for “INSECO” corporation.

As indicated by ZORG representatives, biogas plants will work two seasons per year, recycling production-wastes of the local sugar plant. Project’s capacity will be 40 mln. m3 of biogas per year.
