Green Gothenburg

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 has many advantages, the most important that it does not contribute to the greenhouse effect. Also, it can be produced from resources that otherwise would not be exploited, for example sludge, compost, straw and manure.

In Gothenburg, biogas has been used as vehicle fuel for more than 15 years and enough biogas is produced from sewage sludge to fuel 6,000 cars driving 15,000 kms annually.
All visits start at Älvrummet and continue to some of the following facilities, depending on your needs and focus.

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?
