2016: GoBiGas – technical success at the wrong moment?

In close collaboration with Chalmers, Göteborg Energi could in 2014 inaugurate GoBiGas – the world's first large-scale plant for production of biogas from forest waste. The attention concerning GoBiGas in Swedish press has mainly focused on high costs, impairment and political storms. But technically, GoBiGas is a success which abroad is hailed as a milestone in bioenergy.

Welcome to a lunch seminar on the development of the GoBiGas plant, future prospects, and the role of GoBiGas in a European perspecitve. The seminar is held in English.

Date: 21 October 2016
Time: 12h00–13h00
Location: Johanneberg Science Park, Sven Hultins plats 1, Gothenburg
