BIOGASSYS Final conference: Biogas and blue growth innovation in Skåne 2015

The two LIFE-projects BUCEFALOS and BIOGASSYS have given us examples of how sea weed, which currently litters our beaches, can be converted into renewable biogas and replace fossil fuels in our cars.

We have also seen biogas fuelled tractors, lorries and heat pumps entering the market. This, combined with the establishment of Sweden’s largest biogas production facility and a large network, gives us the opportunity to showcase state of the art biogas applications at the final Conference.
