54 Circwaste, promoting biogas production and usaged in Keskisuomi

In the CIRCWASTE project, Central Finland is focusing on the promotion of biogas for transport use

The Central Finland Region benefits from biogas production from agro-, municipal and industrial waste streams. Thanks to several investments for biogas plants, production is increasing, and the filling station network is expanding.

In the CIRCWASTE project, Central Finland is focusing on the promotion of biogas for transport use. This project provides information for potential users of biogas. In creating markets, e.g. leasing cars of cities, public transport, or waste collection vehicles, it can provide an outstanding example. This project is a Life IP funded project (2016 – 2023) promoting waste prevention, resource efficiency and recycling of materials.

In this region, biogas is seen as a very prominent way to answer the challenges climate change mitigation brings to transport sector. It is a good example of smart utilisation of waste streams, transforming energy from waste materials to easy-to-use form. The process also enables recovery of the nutrients, especially phosphorus, to be re-used as fertilizer.
