The first shipload of feed stock has been received at Biokraft's biogas plant at Skogn
Construction of Biokraft´s factory for production of liquid biogas (LBG) at Skogn is nearing completion. The factory is the world´s largest of its kind. An important milestone preparing for startup of operation is that the first shipload of feed stock has now been received. Scanbio´s largest ship, the "MS Orateca", arrived Skogn last week to unload its cargo consisting of byproduct from Norwegian salmon farmers.
Biokraft´s LBG factory at Skogn converts byproduct from the Norwegian salmon farming industry to renewable biogas and bio nutrients. The liquid biogas is utilized as fuel in buses and other heavy transportation vehicles. The bio nutrients are utilized in the agricultural sector by local farmers in the Skogn area, and will contribute to more renewable food production in Norway.
- Our cooperation with Scanbio is important for Biokraft. Scanbio is leading within byproduct collection from Norwegian salmon farmers, and Biokraft utilizes a significant portion of this feed stock in our factory at Skogn. It feels good to have reached this milestone, and we look forward to the continuation and startup of operations later in the spring, says Mr Håvard Wollan, CEO of Biokraft AS.
- Byproduct from Norwegian salmon farmers utilized for production of renewable biogas and renewable food production means more sustainable salmon farming, Mr Wollan continues.
