Biogas in Stockholm bus services
Biogas is becoming an increasingly common fuel in Stockholm bus services. A large
number of biogas-fuelled buses have entered service, and to make it easier to refuel
them, one of the bus depots has acquired its own biogas filling station, with a direct
gas line from the sewage treatment plant.

WHY BEST PRACTICE
The projects have made possible a successful transition to a locally produced bus fuel from the sewage treatment plant. The projects have contributed to a sharp reduction in noise and environmentally harmful substances from the buses. The projects also offer great potential for wider dissemination, which may lead to greater use of biogas in other cities in Sweden and abroad. This is confirmed by a large number
of Swedish and international study visits to the plant in Söderhallen. Visitors from China, Japan and South Korea have shown interest in implementing similar projects on a larger scale.
