Harnessing Biogenic Carbon Dioxide from Biogas Plants: GasumHackathon

GasumHackathon is open for anyone interested in utilising the biogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) generated as side stream from the biogas upgrading process in Gasum’s biogas plants in Finland and Sweden. Application period for is open until 5 March, 2023.

Gasum Ltd. is the largest biogas producer in the Nordics. It currently operates a network of nine biogas plants and two upgrading plants in Finland, as well as seven biogas plants in Sweden. In addition, Gasum is developing several biogas plant projects in the Nordic countries.

Biogenic carbon dioxide, generated as a side stream of biogas plants, is a very underutilised resource. It could be used in various industrial applications, reducing the carbon footprint of biogas plants. Unlike CO2 from fossil fuels, biogenic CO2 from biogas plants originates from the decomposition of organic wastes and sidestreams and is not considered a greenhouse gas emission.

Why participate in GasumHackathon?

“We are looking for one or several partners, companies or consortiums, with near commercial solutions and interest to take the lead in creating value fro the biogenic CO2 produced at Gasum biogas plants”, says Gasum’s Senior Process Engineer Viljami Kinnunen. “With the winning team or teams of the GasumHackathon, depending on the maturity of the idea and feasibility of the business case, Gasum is willing to continue, for example, with commercial negotiations and joint feasibility study or basic engineering.”
