As part of Sweden’s national strategy to reduce emissions in the transport sector, Gasum and Scania have inaugurated a new biogas filling station in Scania’s home town of Södertälje. The event highlighted the commitment of both companies to sustainable transport solutions and drew attention from industry stakeholders and political decision-makers.


The station, strategically located near the Södertälje Syd junction and Scania’s production plant, underscores the collaborative effort to promote greener fuels. This location is pivotal for one of Sweden’s busiest logistics hubs, enhancing the region’s energy resilience and sustainability.

“Biomethane is a key part of Scania’s sustainability efforts, providing cost-efficient emission reductions and numerous circular economy benefits. The Nordic countries have been leaders in using biomethane in transport. With our partners, we can offer complete waste-to-vehicle solutions,” explained Christian Levin, CEO of Scania and Traton. 

The inauguration focused on the role of biogas in meeting Sweden’s emission reduction targets. Sweden aims to reduce transport emissions by 70% by 2030, using 2010 as the baseline. Biogas is seen as a crucial component in this transition towards a circular economy. The new Södertälje station replaces older ones in Järna and Älvsjö, offering increased capacity and reduced refueling times. It features two compressed gas dispensers and two liquefied gas dispensers, accommodating both heavy-duty transport and smaller vehicles.

 “Scania provides the land for this project and continues to develop gas-powered trucks. This new station supports both local and international transport needs, expanding and securing energy supply for sustainable solutions,” said Sharareh Edström, Head of Business Traffic Sweden at Gasum.
