    Recent years have seen brisk growth in the popularity of gas vehicles. In 2018, for example, the number of gas passenger cars registered was almost double compared to 2017. In addition, the recent Suomalaisten autoilu 2019 motoring survey shows that drivers clocking up more than 20,000 km a year are more interested in a gas vehicle than in a fully electric vehicle,

    Gasum is rapidly growing its supply chain of LNG and LBG in order to support customers’ need for compliance with emission regulations. Building LNG infrastructure today will enable the use of LBG tomorrow.
    Kimmo Rahkamo, VP, Natural gas and LNG, Gasum
    There has been broad recognition in many countries that gas can help heavy-duty road vehicles to quickly cut emissions. The filling station in Oulu is part of Gasum’s Nordic network for heavy-duty road transport and we see considerable potential to increase biogas production in the Oulu area. New gas filling stations ideally deliver the circular economy, fueling demand for renewable biogas in Oulu in different vehicle segments,”
    considers Jukka Metsälä, Vice President Traffic, Gasum.
    With the use of LNG, we reduce the local pollutant emissions of maritime and heavy-duty traffic, while keeping the industry of Northern Finland competitive by offering energy that has low emissions and is affordable to the needs of different operators.
    Kimmo Rahkamo, VP, Natural gas and LNG, Gasum
    Use of gas in transport has increased very rapidly in the Lahti area and the new filling station will further fuel this development. The new station opened in Lahti is part of the Gasum filling station network being constructed for heavy-duty vehicles in the Nordic countries. The new LNG and LBG stations will be located at busy transport hubs, enabling a switch to cleaner fuels in long-distance operations
    says Jukka Metsälä, Vice President, Traffic, Gasum
    The transport industry has a key role to play in cutting emissions in society and this is reflected in the growing demands for eco-friendliness in the sector. Heavy-duty road transport needs a choice of low-emission, cost-efficient fuels. The new filling station is again a leap in the right direction,
    says Pontus Stenberg, CEO of Kiitosimeon
    Our preparations have continued ahead of the opening up of teh Finnish gas market at the start of 2020.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    Our financial performance was in line with our expectations during Q1. Our revenue increased to €396.6 million in the period under review, up 2% year on year.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    The highlights of Gasum’s year of responsibility in 2018 included improving accessibility of low-carbon fuels in the Nordics, implementing remarkable circular economy collaborations with partners and taking a major leap in developing the safety culture.
    Elina Saarivuori, Sustainability Manager, Gasum
    Buying biogas from Tampere Regional Solid Waste Management enables us to support the targets set for transport emission reductions and improve access to biogas.
    Matti Oksanen Diratcotr, Business development, Gasum
    During the year under review, gas was recognized as playing an increasingly important role in efforts to cut carbon dioxide emissions.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum Group
    We want to support our customers in making more sustainable everyday choices. By utilizing the food waste generated at our restaurants we are able to offer our customers a responsible filling-up option at more and more IKEA stores. At the same time, while utilizing the minor amounts of food waste generated at IKEA restaurants, we will also continue to make efforts to reduce food wastage
    says Jessica Lehtinen, Sustainability Manager, IKEA Finland.
    We’re happy about our shared aim of introducing three new gas filling stations in conjunction with IKEA stores this year. The stations already opened in Espoo and Vantaa have been a great success and used actively by customers driving gas-fueled vehicles. The filling stations increase access to gas in new areas and further support the achievement of transport emission reduction targets
    says Markus Kaarlela, Development Manager, Traffic, Gasum.
    In the coming years, we will invest strongly in the development of the Nordic gas market and infrastructure, helping the Nordic countries to reach the emission targets set.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum Group
    Finnish transport emissions must be cut by 50% by 2030 from the 2005 level. Compared with other emissions-generating sectors, the contribution of the transport sector will have to be the greatest. There is also major interest in LNG among transport entrepreneurs – they want to be part of the change and lead the way. LNG is also a cheaper alternative for transport companies than other fuels such as diesel
    says Juha-Matti Koskinen, Sales Manager, Heavy-Duty Transport, Gasum.
    Transport and flows of goods are needed, but transport generates a great deal of carbon dioxide emissions. Liquefied natural gas is an effective way of reducing carbon dioxide emissions from heavy-duty transport. Our choice of fuel plays a very big role in our efforts to reach the climate target
    says Anni Lemola, Head of Operational Excellence, DB Schenker.
    We are an active circular economy player and through our work develop the recycled nutrients, transport and energy markets. Our aims also include customer satisfaction, disturbance-free gas supply and distribution network expansion. In addition, we verify the compliance of our operations and also expect this from our suppliers.
    Elina Saarivuori, Sustainability Manager, Gasum
    Logistics are an integral and necessary part of wholesale operations and we want to contribute to cleaner traffic. A truck powered by eco-friendly, Finnish biogas seemed to us a natural choice. Traffic generates a considerable share of overall emissions and we’re working to reduce them through the choices we make. Compared with a diesel motor, for example, a biogas-fueled vehicle also significantly reduces noise nuisance,
    says Tommi Martikainen transport manager at Heinon Tukku.
    Emissions reductions achieved by choice of fuel play an important part in curbing traffic emissions. It’s great that Heinon Tukka has joined the growing ranks of companies whose vehicles use eco-friendly biogas. This also serves as an example to other companies planning future investments in gas-fueled delivery vehicles,
    states Jani Arala Senior Sales Manager, Traffic, at Gasum.
    The demand for gas cars is growing in Finland, and this is no wonder as gas has many advantages as a road vehicle fuel. It’s an inexpensive fuel. Our fixed price campaign offering biogas at a fixed monthly price has been highly popular. Gas cars are also competitive in terms of their purchase price compared with diesel and gasoline cars, and different gas car models are becoming increasingly available
    says Heidi Kuoppala, Sales Manager, Traffic, from Gasum.
    The working group recognized that predictability will be needed in the future, too, for the creation of the biogas market and gave a clear signal for the continued excise duty-free status of biogas. Fixed-term support for the acquisition of clean vehicles can also help accelerate the rate of emission cuts. The acquisition and operating costs of gas-fueled vehicles are already very competitive, whereas the switch to electric is currently only being anticipated as an option for ordinary people,
    says Matti Oksanen, Director, Product Management and Solutions, Biogas, from Gasum.
    It’s interesting to enter into recycled nutrients cooperation with Gasum. This is already the second circular economy project this year in which we’ve had the opportunity to participate and offer industrial operators and production processes products created as side streams.
    Algol Chemicals Managing Director Juha Jokinen
    Cooperation with Gasum reduces our carbon footprint, decreases the nutrient load on the environment and promotes the realization of energy efficiency and circular economy in the Turku region.
    Mirva Levomäki, CEO, Turun seudun puhdistamo Oy.
    Our aim for the Turku biogas plant modernization and expansion project is to implement a circular economy solution that will increase the biomass processing capacity and access to biogas and launch new refined recycled nutrient products in the market in the Turku region.
    Ari Suomilammi, Director, Biogas Production and Sourcing, Gasum
    LNG-powered vehicles can also switch to 100% Finnish and renewable liquefied biogas (LBG) without any special capital outlays.
    Sales Manager, Juha-Matti Koskinen,Gasum
    Our revenue was up 22.5% year on year at €827.4 million and our operating profit was €93.0 million.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    Completing the acquisition of Skangas gives us even better opportunities to build and develop the Nordic gas ecosystem and to respond to growing demand. We thank the Lyse Group for the good co-operation in developing the LNG market.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    We are pleased about the circular economy cooperation with the Stora Enso’s paper and pulp mill at Nymölla. The biogas plant is a sustainable solution for the processing of wastewater. Gasum is actively building a gas ecosystem for industry, marine and road transport segment in the Nordics. Due to increasing demand for low-emission traffic, we are planning to build a considerably large number of gas filling stations for the heavy-duty vehicle segment in Sweden.
    Johanna Lamminen, Chief Executive Officer of Gasum
    We want to test new, environmentally sound fuels. Feedstocks used in biogas production include inedible side streams from Valio’s production. This is circular economy at its best.
    says Mika Jyrkönen, Logistics Manager, Valio
    It’s great that Finland’s leading dairy product manufacturer is able to utilize its own waste as an environmentally friendly fuel and that way reduce its emissions. Biogas is financially competitive compared with other biofuels. In Finnish transport, 40% of emissions come from heavy-duty transport and therefore this sector is under particular pressure to cut emissions.
    says Gasum Sales Manager Juha-Matti Koskinen
    The opportunity to fill up your vehicle on 100% Finnish biogas coupled with the low carbon dioxide emissions of gas vehicles make driving on gas an attractive alternative, and this is reflected in the need for gas filling stations. The stations opened in conjunction with IKEA Finland stores further improve the opportunities to refuel gas vehicles. Our cooperation with IKEA Finland is a brilliant example of opportunities for circular economy utilization, and we’re looking forward to opening new gas filling stations in conjunction with other IKEA stores.
    says Jani Arala, Senior Manager, Sales, Road Fuels, from Gasum
    ”We’re on our way towards a carbon-neutral society and it’s now time to accelerate the pace. Gas plays an indisputably important role in this transition. In recent years, we’ve been making purposeful efforts to build the Nordic LNG and biogas infrastructure to improve access to gas.
    Gasum CEO Johanna Lamminen
    Our Group’s financial performance further improved in line with our expectations during H1. Our revenue was up 18% year on year at €597.5 million and our operating profit was €76.3 million for the period under review.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum Group
    Gasum has been taking determined steps to expand the gas refueling infrastructure as gas is a key way of achieving the stricter emission targets in road as well as maritime transport
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    Safeguarding and developing a cleaner environment calls for diverse cooperation as the bridge to a carbon-neutral future is already being built today.
    Gasum Vice President for Communications Olga Väisänen
    We are very excited to be now able to offer a more efficient and cleaner alternative to diesel in heavy long-haul transport.
    Jani Arala, Senior Manager, Sales, Gasum
    As regards heavy-duty fleets, LNG is the best alternative to diesel among the currently available solutions.
    Vesa Soppi, Volvo Business Solutions Manager
    Our Group's financial performance improved in line with our expextations during Q1 2018. Our revenue increased by 23.4% enabled by growth in every one of our business areas.
    Gasum Group CEO, Johanna Lamminen
    Steps forward in responsibility were taken by Gasum in 2017 by investing in and expanding the gas market with its cooperation partners in the Nordic countries.
    Anna-Sofia Malmi, Communications Manager, Gasum
    "It’s important for us to participate continuously in the development of tax legislation and policies."
    Gasum CEO, Johanna Lamminen
    It’s excellent that the first IKEA store gas filling station is now open in Finland.
    Gasum Vice President for Biogas Jukka Metsälä
    We are a Finnish company with long traditions and so want to do our bit for a cleaner environment. Above all, use of renewable local Finnish energy is a responsible choice
    Seppo Korpela, Managing Director at Lihajaloste Korpela.
