Göteborg Energi and Lidköping municipality have entered into an agreement with FordonsGas Sverige, a subsidiary of the French company Air Liquide, on the transfer of Lidköping Biogas to FordonsGas Sverige. The transfer is expected to be completed in February 2016.

Göteborg Energi is West Sweden’s leading energy company. The transfer takes place as part of a decision of Göteborg Energi on a strategy focusing on the core business in Gothenburg.
