The eight Nordic Biogas Conference (NBC) will be held October 3rd–6th, 2022 in Linköping, Sweden.

Biogas solutions according to the Nordic model can solve many of humanity’s grand challenges, but that capacity is largely unknown. In this conference you will hear more about the ability of biogas solutions to address pressing issues like climate change, air pollution, waste, soil fertility clean water, local and regional development, food and energy security, the transition to a circular and biobased economy and as well as a fossil-free transport and industry.

Target group: Stakeholders (users and decision makers) from both municipal and private sector, technology providers, energy companies, consultants, R&D / universities.

The whole value chain of biogas and fertilizer will be represented.

The conference includes plenary presentations, parallel sessions, a poster session and an indoor exhibition. NBC provides the opportunity to meet the decision-makers in the biogas industry, exchange best practice-information on production, distribution and utilisation of biogas and even bio-fertilizer in the Nordic countries, enhance cooperation and establish new business relationships. 

History of NBC
The Tradition of Nordic Biogas Conferences organized in co-operation between the five Nordic countries took its beginning in a very cold Helsinki in Finland in 2006. It developed through Malmö in Sweden in 2008 and Oslo in Norway in 2010. In Copenhagen in Denmark in 2012 we reached to highest number of participants and exhibitors.

Reykjavik in Iceland in 2014 and the maritime version between Stockholm and Vasaa in Finland organized by Finland in 2016 took, however the price for the most spectacular venues. In 2019 we were back in Oslo before the covid-19 interrupted the biannual Nordic conferences. Everybody therefore looks forward to the 2022 Nordic Biogas Conference in Linköping, Sweden.

The conference is a great opportunity for all those actors wanting to explore how biogas solutions can help different organizations to meet societies’ grand sustainability challenges. Representatives from cities and regions is an important target group as well as those from industry who for instance want to become fossil-free. Companies involved in transport, forestry and the food sector including farmers will all find the conference program relevant and rewarding. Not least of course, politicians on different levels can learn a lot but also explain the needs of the political actors. Researchers of different disciplinary backgrounds will also be there, of course together with the core actors of the biogas solutions sector itself.
