The Skåne area in southern Sweden is one of the regions in the world with multiple facilities to upgrade biogas, converting the gas into car fuel quality methane. Since the upgrading process yields a high purity stream of CO2 as a by-product, it has been proposed that CO2 from multiple gas upgrading facilities in Skåne be used in a BECCS project, storing CO2 in geological formations below ground in the south west parts of the region. 52
