Gasum subsidiary Skangas delivers liquefied biogas (LBG) to Uddeholm for production use

The world’s leading manufacturer of tool steel for industrial tools, Uddeholm is testing liquefied biogas (LBG) in Sweden as part of its efforts to find sustainable ways for the production of steel. Gasum subsidiary Skangas delivers Swedish LBG to the Uddeholm production plant from the parent company Gasum Group’s Lidköping biogas facility.

Uddeholm is now testing liquefied biogas (LBG) in its production. The company replaced heavy fuel oil with liquefied natural gas (LNG) in four years ago. LBG can replace LNG and can be used directly into the same processes. The reason is that both gases consist mainly of methane, they are interchangeable and thus the same LNG supply chain can be used. By replacing natural gas with biogas, Uddeholm will reduce CO2 emissions from production even further.

Liquefied biogas (LBG) is similar to liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a product. LBG is produced through the processing of various types of organic waste. It is a renewable and environmentally friendly fuel made from 100% local feedstocks.
