It is with great pride we close the first quarter of 2023 – and the best quarter ever for BPC. The financial results clearly confirm that our major business expansion is now beginning, with a total turnover of KSEK 12,889 – an increase of 130 percent compared to the same quarter of 2022. Our EBIT increase is even higher, ending up with KSEK 2,385 compared to KSEK 202 a year ago. Expanding in both biogas and our new market segments, BPC’s status as a solid and stable green-tech company must be considered and proven once and for all.
