We have laid down more stringent than normal environmental criteria for our production plant. We put great emphasis on research and development work, with the result that our activity is both efficient and environmentally friendly. The recycled product biogas that we produce is derived from organic waste that is a renewable, domestic energy source.
• We operate according to the terms of our environmental permit and report on the operations of the plant regularly to the Häme Centre for Economic Development , Transport and the Environment, and also to the Finnish Food Safety Authority -EVIRA
• Thanks to a processing system for Biological odour emission gases, the odour intensity of our plant falls well below the permitted maximum. While the maximum emission level for foul smelling gas is set at 2500 OU/m³ (odour units), LABIO´s production plant reaches a level of only 500 OU/m³.
• Due to the chosen dry decay technology the plant does not produce any process waste that is a burden to the environment or difficult to purify. The wastewater produced is channeled to Lahti Aqua´s treatment plant for purification.
The cleaning system for odorous gases. The steam emitted from the chimney is purified air.
Recycled fuel biogas from your own waste material
Our customers have the opportunity to raise the recoverability level of their waste, while also reducing their carbon footprints. In addition to delivering their bio-waste to the LABIO plant for treatment an enterprise can take advantage of the biogas produced by Labio and use it as an energy source. Biogas from recycled materials is delivered via the Gasum gas network under the name Omaenergia (your own energy).
The total national CO2 production is reduced, even if the enterprises that bring waste to LABIO never used any biogas. The waste of the enterprises that deliver their waste to Labio is turned into biogas for use in motor vehicles, thereby replacing fossil fuels,
