Abstract

In the year 2008, Business Region Goteborg, a collection of 13-member municipalities, was awarded the “Blue Sky Innovation Award” for encouraging the use of biomethane as a sustainable transportation fuel. Goteborg, in particular, and Sweden, in general, had viewed the increased use of biogas as key to creating a more sustainable society and as a step toward a fossil-fuel-free future.
