AGROPTI-Gas project : Lauren Pritchard

13 10 2008


In Sweden they are using household as biomass and paring it with ley crops transforming it into bio gas. This bio gas is then used to fuel cars, public transportation as well as providing the heat and electricity to the homes in the community of Vasteras Sweden.  This use of bio gas is just a major way in which Sweden is  reducing their green house gas emissions. Europe is taking note of Sweden’s AGROPTI-Gas project.

Hopefully Sweden’s success with the project as well Europe’s enthusiasm over the idea of biomass as fuel, will persuade the rest of the world to also consider biomass as a alternative for fuel.

This video explains Sweden’s AGROPTI-Gas project in a little more depth.
