Liquefied biomethane for steelmaking

Uddeholm, a manufacturer of tool steel for industrial tools, is using liquefied biogas (LBG) in Sweden as part of its efforts produce steel in a sustainable
way. The company replaced heavy fuel oil with liquefied natural gas (LNG) in 2014. By replacing natural gas with biogas,
the company reduces CO2 emissions from their production even further. LBG can substitute LNG without addiotnal changes and can be used directly into the plant’s heat production. Skangas delivers Swedish LBG from the Lidköping biogas facility. Here the biomethane is produced through processing of various types of organic waste made from 100% local feedstocks. The gas is liquefied by cooling it to a temperature of minus 150–170 °C for delivery as LBG.
