Adesso BioProducts AB is planning a biogas facility in Stenungsund in collaboration with Andion Scandinavia AB
The facility will enable local production of biogas from the region’s food waste
Adesso BioProducts AB has signed a letter of intent with Andion, a global leader in biogas facilities and production, to develop a new biogas plant in Stenungsund. The facility will be an important component in the green transformation of the chemical industry, helps to meet an increasing demand for biogas and contributes to solving the waste challenges in the region. The facility will primarily handle food waste, but will also take industrial waste and manure. Once fully developed, the facility is estimated to deliver over 70 GWh of fossil-free biogas to the region’s gas grid, equal to the energy value of 7 million liters of diesel. It will help the Stenungsund based chemical companies and other energy-intensive industries in the region to switch from fossil-based natural gas to biogas and increase the region’s degree of self-sufficiency.
The new facility will benefit the local environment and circular economy, by recycling food waste that is currently transported long distances to other parts of the country. In addition to the food waste and manure, the glycerin Adesso produces can be utilized as local biogas raw material instead of being exported to facilities in Denmark and Germany.
In addition to biogas, the facility will also produce biofertilizer for local agriculture which will displace the use of synthetic fertilizers produced using fossil fuels. The facility is slated to be built in the industrial area just north of Stenungsund in direct connection to the municipality’s recycling station and sewage treatment plant. Adesso is also planning to build a bioethylene plant in the same industrial area allowing for additional synergies between the plants, including waste heat recovery.
Adesso, which is the initiator of the project, will develop the project in partnership with Andion, capitalizing on Andion’s long experience in biogas production and project development. The plan is to start construction of the facility at the end of 2024 after all permits for the facility have been granted.
“We look with great satisfaction at the possibility of building this long-awaited biogas plant,” said Lars Lind, CEO at Adesso BioProducts. “With the addition of the facility, we will be able to contribute to an improved circular exchange between city, country and industry and utilize local residual streams to contribute to the industrial green transition. Andion has built and operate a large number of such facilities, which feels like a win-win situation right from the start.”
“A very interesting project for Andion where we get the opportunity to build on the vision of fossil-free energy based on waste of various kinds, mainly manure and food waste.,” Said Ruben Havsed, Head of Business Development at Andion Scandinavia. “The fact that the project is being developed with Adesso BioProducts, a company firmly rooted in the region with extensive experience in fossil-free energy from the past, contributes to a smooth and efficient collaboration.”
