GAS EXCHANGE SEMINAR

REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN

During the seminar we will hear about the global gas revolution where oil is being replaced by natural gas. For example LNG is becoming an environmentally and economically viable option. When it comes to small-scale power generation and transport, the transition to methane gas can only be sustainable if it includes a reasonable share of biogas.

VAASA PROVIDES SOLUTIONS ON LAND AND AT SEA

In Vaasa international companies are working with a wide range of gas solutions for the world market that bring LNG to consumers both on land and at sea. The Vaasa region also has local biogas production and several development projects to showcase.
