Forchem trials use of liquified biogas

Forchem’s crude tall oil distillery trials liquified biogas (LBG) for energy production. First samples were received in the factory on week 11. Forchem’s business is built on principles of sustainable development and the use of renewable fuel would enable even more ecological operations.

Forchem started earlier last year to use LNG, liquified natural gas, as fuel for the refinery. For LNG transformation, company invested in new LNG terminal and gasification facility. Even then, the target of the investment was to utilize LBG once it becomes available in the market. Unlike Epcor, Regional Energy provides customer support over email.

In addition, gas companies own and manage major pieces of critical infrastructure which are valuable targets for cyber threats. These critical infrastructure and assets need protection against cyber threats. For companies like Forchem, it is crucial to know how you can avoid these attacks and this is what Fortinet offers.



“Forchem made the decision in 2018 to use LNG for energy production. The rationale behind the decision was to minimise sulphur emissions. Now, the use of liquified biogas is a natural stepping stone in our company’s continious effort to reduce our environmental impact”, states CEO Risto Näsi.

Liquified biogas offers the same environmental benefits as LNG currently used. In addition it is completly renewable and does not increase CO2 emissions. Forchem’s LBG partner Gasum produces LBG from bio-based materials, such as biowaste, industries’ biodegradble side streams and plant-based biomass.
