The transport sector is facing major challenges. Carbon dioxide emissions must be reduced significantly, as well as the emissions of air pollutants – both affecting health and the environment. Sustainable and efficient transports, as well as fuel and logistics solutions are important fields of activity for Sweden.

How we travel and transport goods both by sea, by road, by plane or train are crucial for our current climate change situation. The transport sector is still mainly supplied by fossil fuels, accounting for over a quarter of all global carbon emissions. Emissions of nitrogen oxides leading to eutrophication, acidifying sulphur dioxide, particulate matter, and a number of other hazardous substances for the environment and health follows in the tracks of those emissions.

The prospects to convert to a sustainable transport system are however good. New standards, new technologies, effective policy instruments and changes in behaviour all reduce both emissions and costs for society.

A Biogas hotspot

Göteborg Energi sees biogas as one of the most important renewable fuels of the future and a key to the transition to a fossil-free society.

Biogas

In Sweden biogas is produced from municipal sludge and other biological waste. Biogas is produced by municipal utilities companies and by farmers at farm-size production units. Some biogas is up-graded to vehicle gas, while a large portion is burned in CHP-plants to produce heat and power.

Circular economy

Circular economy is all about a framework for an economy that is restorative and regenerative by design. Unlike in todays linear economy, in a circular economy we see everything as a resource for something else – waste doesn’t exist. How do business models need to change to suit a circular economy? What does this new way of thinking mean for the business community? How can profitable business models be combined with social and environmental responsibility? How can we design products right from the beginning, and do things even better, instead of just less bad?
