The agreement with Gasum significantly expands our alternative fuel offering across Scandinavia and enables us to serve customers in Finland with LNG and CNG for the first time.”

“We’re pleased to join UTA’s acceptance network and to welcome drivers with UTA cards at Gasum stations,” says Juho Kurra, Business Development Manager Traffic at Gasum. “The part nership provides greater flexibility for transport companies to purchase alternative fuels and supports our vision to enable low-emissions mobility for European logistics companies.”

Biogas and liquefied biogas as valuable options in the face of a natural gas shortage Gasum is a leading Nordic gas supplier with extensive expertise in biogas and biodegradable waste fractions. The company is constantly expanding its range of LNG/LBG and CNG/CBG filling stations, providing an alternative to diesel and other conventional fuels. In addition to LNG and CNG, all Gasum stations offer biogas (CBG) and liquefied biogas (LBG). As these are produced from various types of organic waste, they offer a valuable alternative in the face of a natural gas shortage caused by the Ukraine crisis.
