    Sweden's First Liquid BioGas Filling Station to be Created

    Scandinavian GtS has announced plans for Sweden's first Liquid BioGas (LBG) filling station in the city of Sundsvall, apparently to be the first city in the world with the ability to fill public vehicles with LBG (also known as liquefied biomethane - LBM). Hans Kättström CEO of Scandinavian GtS AB said, "LBG is a second generation of sustainable fuels and a commercially interesting alternative for heavy duty traffic, making it possible to solve Sweden's need in a sustainable way. With production of LBG and this station, our politicians do not need to look any further or invest in developing alternatives. LBG technology opens new possibilities for large scale production and brings this technology to every consumer in Sweden, giving us the opportunity to replace all petrol and diesel.”

    "It is no longer a question of technology but a question of will power to make a change. If the will exists in the Swedish government we can be independent from oil and perhaps the first country in the world to do so. Sundsvall can count on both national as well as international visits to view this process."

    Re: sweden knows

    I visited Sweden on a work-related trip in 2009 and saw buses and cars fueled by biomethane in Gotenberg, Stockholm and Vasteras. The whole western part of Sweden seems to be expanding a program called BioGasMax. I promoted this idea when working on a wastewater treatment project for the CRD (Capital Regional District) (Victoria BC area). It was met with mild amusement. ;>P

      Yes, biomethane capture and use is absolutely do-able, and has been done . . . mostly by European countries like Sweden, Iceland, etc.

      Lately, here in midwest there has been TV ads ran by GE claiming that they are involved in "BioGas" projects to capture livestock and wastewater methane for re-use. My guess is that they are just burning to generate electricity but curious if anyone knows any more details?

      IF, big company like GE could be convinced of transportation fueling benefits of biogas, AND, they could get wastewater, feedlot, landfill, etc systems in place all across the country USA, we might just start the momentum to doing something good with CNG !

        BioGas seems to be a great alternative to reduce the dependence on middle-eastern oil, and reducing the environmental impact of garbage and wastewater management.
