According to the statement, LNG will be delivered to Forchem’s production site via tank trucks from Gasum’s LNG terminal in Pori, Finland. Gasum claims that the first delivery is scheduled to take place this September.
The LNG terminal is located approximately 70 km from Forchem on the Finnish west coast. LNG will be received at Forchem’s receiving terminal, regasified and then used in Forchem’s production process. Forchem supplies products to global players in a variety of markets. The main characteristic of Forchem’s production is the principle of sustainable development and a minimal environmental footprint.
Risto Näsi, CEO of Forchem, said: “We are very committed to utilise renewable raw material to produce environmentally friendly products for wide variety of uses.
“We chose LNG primarily because it minimises our emissions, particularly sulfur emissions. We are also keen to evaluate the use of liquefied biogas (LBG) in the future as it would further reduce our carbon footprint.”
The Vice President of Gasum’s natural gas and LNG business, Kimmo Rahkamo, added: “Gasum is rapidly growing its supply chain of LNG and LBG in order to support customers’ need for compliance with emission regulations. Building LNG infrastructure today will enable the use of LBG tomorrow.”
