BioGTS to build a vehicle biomethane plant in Finland

BioGTS is a Finnish company that provides scalable biorefinering solutions based on patented biogas and biodiesel technologies. Such solutions have been designed for the treatment of organic biodegradable wastes from municipalities, industries and farms. The firm has just signed a purchase agreement with BioSairila concerning the delivery of a biorefinery to the City of Mikkeli in Eastern Finland (see press release).

The plant will utilize municipal and agricultural biomass for the production of biogas and fertilizer products. At the moment, the waste management center of Metsäsairila Oy (local waste management company) treats biowaste and sewage sludge at a composting plant to obtain soil improvement products utilized in landscaping. In a close future, vehicle fuel and recycled nutrients will be generated from those residues in the BioSairila plant. The production of vehicle biomethane will offer an opportunity for car owners to switch to a low emission driving in the area of Mikkeli.
