The Regional Council of Central Finland promotes the recycling and reuse of waste in the region. One of the focus areas of the subproject is promoting the production and use of biogas.

Among other things, the project has examined the composition of mixed waste generated by households in Central Finland. The aim is to minimize the number of reusable waste fractions that end up in mixed waste.

Sustainable transport with biogas

The production and use of biogas, especially for transport purpose, is gaining traction in Central Finland. The network of biogas fueling stations has been expanded by Mustankorkea Oy and Gasum Oy. The goal is to have 5,000 biogas-driven passenger cars in Central Finland by the end of the project. In addition to this, heavy traffic could use biogas much more than at present.

Communications and announcements related to biogas are posted on the Biokaasu Keski-Suomi Facebook page (in Finnish).

The project is also partially funded by Mustankorkea Oy, Sammakkokangas Oy and Gasum Oy.
