Driving biogas vehicles could push emissions down to just one third
Refining biomass into transport fuel would mean a significant reduction in climate emissions in Turku, Salo and Kymenlaakso. Calculations made in the framework of the W-Fuel project show that in... Read moreBiogas production needs support to flourish
Calculations made in the framework of the W-Fuel project show that economically feasible production of biogas for transport fuel is possible in Southern Finland. In the early days, however,... Read moreEnvironmental and economic impacts of food waste prevention in Estonia

Biogas – the future fuel
The CO2 emissions in a biogas-powered vehicle are, indeed, zero grams per kilometre. In Estonia, biogas is not yet used as transport fuel. In Finland, it has been taken to a small-scale use. However, good, well- working examples are not that hard to find: Sweden and Italy are the European forerunners in using biogas as transport fuel.
When tackling the climate change, regions that develop material efficiency, renewable clean transport fuel and high quality waste management gain competitive advantage. Therefore, the project provides means to develop industry and services related to waste management and renewable fuel in the case areas, as well as supports them in constructing new, self-sustaining systems in these sectors.
