Finland opened the largest biogas plant in the world

 

    March 18, 2013. The new plant is located in the region of Vaasa, on the Finnish West Coast. It uses a biomass as fuel produced with waste from the timber industry, which is one of the major economic activities in Finland. With 140 megawatts of power, the plant of Vaasa will produce the most biomass gasification of the world.

   Installed in an existing coal plant, the new venture will increase the use of renewable energy and reduce the use of coal, while improve the trade balance of the country, said Minister of Labour Lauri Ihalainen, responsible for opening the plant, in a statement.

   The plant, which operates the Finnish company Vaskiluodon Voima, will decrease by 25 to 40% the coal needs and directly employ 100 people and indirectly thousands more in the region, while producing energy and heat for the inhabitants of Vaasa.
