During the autumn, we will build and start up a number of exciting facilities for liquid biogas, also called LBG. First up is the pressure regulation facility for Örebro municipality, which is taking a big step towards making gas supplies more stable and enabling an expansion of the biogas network in Örebro.
The plant is now fully built and will shortly be put into operation. Once up and running, the cryogenic tank, which can be compared to a giant vacuum-insulated thermos, will be able to store up to 89m3 of liquid biogas at minus 160 degrees Celsius.
When the pressure in the local gas pipeline is too low, the plant starts to vaporize LBG from the tank to gaseous form in a controlled process where the volume in atmospheric pressure expands approx. 600 times from liquid to gaseous form.
In addition to being a back-up to the gas network, our plant also functions as a back-up of for biomethane delivery to the nearby Bettorp public transport depot, if it cannot be supplied with RNG from the high-pressure refueling station intended for that purpose.
