Swedish Biogas increases sales to the haulage sector by 145%

In 2021, Swedish Biogas increased sales to the haulage segment of its locally produced biogas by 145% compared to 2020. When players in the transport sector invest in conversion from fossil fuels, more and more hauliers are switching to using renewable biogas in liquid (LBG) and compressed form (CBG), reports the company.

Tekniska verken, Swedish Biogas’s parent company, manufactures and densifies the biogas that Swedish Biogas delivers to the transport and industrial sector in Linköping.

As a locally produced biogas, the price can be kept at a stable level and customers do not have to depend on volatile fossil fuel prices, the company said.

Tekniska verken started selling LBG for HGVs just two years ago but based on the rising demand, the company will invest more in the haulage segment. Among other things, a third filling station will open in Norrköping in 2022.

“For long-distance heavy transport that wants to switch to fossil-free, there are not many sustainable alternatives. The biogas at our filling stations is currently about 30-35 percent cheaper than diesel, at the same time as it is completely renewable. LBG is a solution that is available here and now at an attractive price for heavy trucks,”  says Erik Nordell, who is product manager for LBG at Tekniska verken in Linköping.
