Willén, Jessica, 2010. Fordonsgas från deponier : en potentialstudie i Biogas Öst-regionen. Second cycle, A2E. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Energy and Technology



The demand for biogas as vehicle fuel has risen sharply and there is a great need for
increased production. A possible addition of vehicle gas can be produced by upgrading
landfill gas which is formed by degradation of organic waste. This thesis investigates the
potential of producing vehicle fuel from landfill gas in the region of Biogas Öst.

In 2008, an amount of 32 million Nm3 landfill gas was extracted in the region. This level
can be maintained for another ten years if the efficiency of gas extraction is improved. The
annual production will decrease with time since landfills aren’t allowed to receive more
organic waste. Landfill gas is hence a large but not lasting source of vehicle fuel.

The amount of available landfill gas that is possible to upgrade to vehicle gas is limited by
technical and financial issues. With certain limitations taken into account, an estimation of
the regions potential gives an annual production of 8.2 million Nm3 vehicle gas. This means
that more than 7 000 private cars or 250 buses could be operated with vehicle fuel from
landfills in the region.
