Gasendal – A world class biogas plant

Opportunities enabled

When opened in spring 2007, the Gasendal plant, was the largest biogas upgrading facility in the world.

The plant receives biogas from Gryaab, a local wastewater treatment plant, and upgrades it to natural gas quality. The gas, which is injected into the natural gas grid, is used primarily as vehicle fuel in accordance with the green gas principle, in a way similar to the trade in green electricity. By replacing petrol with biogas in vehicles, carbon dioxide emissions is cut by up to 15,000 tons per year.
