Finnish Adven and Norwegian Biokraft have signed an agreement regarding reject water processing at Biokraft’s coming biogas plant near Trondheim, Norway.

Once completed, the plant will be the biggest liquefied biogas production facility in the Nordic region.

Adven supplies tailored corporate energy solutions and district heating. In this project, its job is to take care of reject water handling, scheduled maintenance and remote management of the evaporation plant. Annually, it will process 160 000 cubic metres of reject water.

Biokraft’s ambition is to transform forestry industry waste, marine energy crops and fishery waste into liquefied bio gas (LBG), thus reducing waste. The effect is amplified by Adven, which utilises the reject waters produced in the biofuel process.

“Liquid processing as a service is one of the growing industries for Adven,” says Olavi Raunio, VP sales, Adven Group. “We are very happy to be taking these steps to expand our business to Norway with one of our flagship services. Efficient reject water handling is a common challenge for all biogas companies. Our service is a sustainable solution that brings the customers security and predictability.”

The contract is part of Adven’s strategy to expand to new areas in the world. The evaporator plant is being built as a Finnish-Norwegian joint operation.
