The EU commission's state support enquiry has been completed with a positive outcome and the Swedish Energy Agency can now proceed with awarding 222 million SEK (US$32.3 million) to the GoBiGas biomethane project. The agency granted the funding in September 2010. The GoBiGas-project is a project for the large-scale production of renewable methane by gasification of biomass and low-quality forestry material. The syngas resulting from gasification is purified and then upgraded in a methanation plant to biogas with a quality comparable to natural gas to enable the two types of gases to be mixed in the gas network, until the natural gas is phased out. The project is a collaboration between Göteborg Energi and E.ON. Göteborg Energi expects to deliver in 2020 biogas equivalent of 1 TWh. This represents about 30% of current deliveries in Gothenburg or fuel to 75'000 cars.
