Facts about the facility

Country Sweden
Region Hallands län
Plant Location Laholm
Start of Operation 2001
Biomethane Feed-in Capacity 300 m³/h
Upgrade Technology Pressurised Water Scrubbing PWS
Substrate Manure, industrial waste, household waste, other organic waste

The Laholm Biogas plant in Sweden was started in 1992 with the purpose of reducing eutrophication in the area. It is a central co-digestion plant that receives manure and different kinds of organic waste from the region and turns this into bio-fertilizer and biogas. The biogas has since 2001 been injected into the local natural gas distribution grid.

The biogas has replaced around 25% of the regional natural gas consumption and is partly used in the city of Laholm for heating in industries and houses. A part of the biogas is also used as vehicle fuel in a filling station located on the outskirts of Laholm, thereby reducing the local emissions of particulates and hydrocarbons.

The Laholm biogas plant has successfully and substantially reduced the regional eutrophication and nitrogen leakage into the Laholm bay area. It has also reduced the CO2-emissions by 3,700 tons/ year by annually replacing 18,000 MWh natural gas.
