Gasum brings new alternative fuel stations to the Nordics

Finnish energy company Gasum has opened its fifth gas filling station in Sweden, offering liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas (LBG) to heavy-duty vehicles. Gasum plans to grow its Nordic network to 50 gas filling stations by early 2020 in order to satisfy growing demand from logistics companies for cost-effective, low-emission fuel options. New EU regulations state that greenhouse emissions from heavy-duty vehicles need to be reduced by 30 per cent by 2030. Image: Gasum

Stora Enso and Atos join forces for new retail solutions

Finnish company Stora Enso and French digital transformation company Atos have launched a global collaboration to bring new automated retail solutions and services to market. These will be based on the concept of intelligent cabinets, which use Stora Enso’s sustainable radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to track and trace stored items. Consumers can use the e-kiosks for on-the-go purchasing with smart phones and card payments, while retailers receive a back-end solution for keeping track of transactions and replenishment.
