Biogass Oslofjord is a collaborative network between the counties of Vestfold–Telemark and Viken as well as Oslo-municipality, located in Norway it was founded in 2018. Wework on promoting investment, infrastructure development,and expande the adoption of biogas in region.
Our goals are:
Norway plans on becoming a «zero-emission» nation by 2050and we believe that biogas is one of the best methods forreaching those goal in tandem with other types of renewable energies. Biogas has the advantage of not only using already existing waste for its production, but also reducing emission by taking advantage the natural pathway of CO2, thus biogas does not contribute to global warming.
The role of the network
As of the writing of this text, Norway’s biogas potential has not been reached. There are still many potential biomass sources than can be used for biogas production in Norway thathas not been taken advantage of being instead treated as waste. We are currently working actively towards the employment of biogas in the construction and transport sector, as well as research and development.
Biogass Oslofjord have both worked and contributed toseveral different projects through its existence. We produce annual reports about biogas in Norway, which are only published in Norwegian. These includes studies in different biomass sources, as well as potential new markets for biogas.
