The overall goal of the project is to build new knowledge and create favorable conditions for biogas business and biogas use in Ostrobothnia region through feasibility studies, measurements and common operation models.

The project aims to determine the conditions for creating new regional infrastructure for liquefied biogas in the Vaasa region and to verify the environmental performance of biogas transport fuels by measuring methane emissions from biogas buses, and by examining the durability and maintenance needs of biogas heavy vehicles. It also explores the techno-economic feasibility of biogas for industrial and academic research and experimentation in the region, and explores the biogas suitability for local energy systems and greenhouses through industrial symbiosis, to create common operating models in the biogas business network between different actors. It also aims to develop biogas competence and to increase the quantity of experts in Ostrobothnia
