4 Dear Friends and Colleagues, The Baltic Biogas Bus project invites You to an International Scientific-Technical conference on the use of biogas as vehicle fuel, mainly for city buses. The conference is organised by the Polish Motor Transport Institute in cooperation with the Mayor of Rzeszow. Biogas is a renewable fuel and part of the sustainable eco cycle. It comes from natural degradable processes of biological waste products, from households, restaurants, food industries and sewage treatment plants. Biogas has also been in practical use as vehicle fuel for many years. The Baltic Biogas Bus project will stimulate cities and regions around the Baltic Sea to use biogas driven buses. The project aims to show cost effective solutions on biogas production as well as distribution and use in buses. The project is partly funded by the European Union s Baltic Sea Region Programme, started June 2009 and will run until September The 12 project partner organisations are mentioned on the last page of this brochure from eight countries in the region. This conference will start with viewpoints from European, national and local level decision makers. Based on successful examples of biogas bus cities a manual on how to introduce biogas buses is presented. That will be complemented by presentations on biogas production, infrastructure and its use in buses. This conference provides all building blocks for introducing biogas buses in cities or to expand it. You are most welcome to participate in our conference and the discussions on the future of biogas buses in public transport. In name of the organising organisations we wish You welcome, Andrzej Wojciechowski Director of Motor Transport Institute Tadeusz Ferenc Mayor of Rzeszow Lennart Hallgren Project manager Baltic Biogas Bus Project

9 Baltic Biogas Bus project - Renewable fuel for climate neutral public transport The world is facing increased demand for transportation, at the same time as fossil fuel resources are diminishing. On top of this, concern for climate change due to the emission of green house gases is growing. This has boosted the interest for investments in new energy technologies. One technology gaining widespread recognition is that of producing biogas. Not only is it a way to decrease dependency on fossil fuels and lead to less impact on climate change, but biogas is also a fuel fit to reduce other environmental impacts. Biogas is part of the natural carbon cycle and therefore has limited climate impact. Compared to diesel or petrol it also reduces local emissions substantially leading to improved air and environmental quality. Take into account that it can easily be produced in urban areas and you can understand that biogas is ideal for use as fuel for public transportation, Lennart Hallgren, at Stockholm Public Transport and manager of the Baltic Biogas Bus project explains. Baltic Biogas Bus project The project is partly funded by the European Union s Baltic Sea Region Programme and officially started two years ago in June 2009 and will run until September However, preparations for the project started almost two years earlier. Although the preparation phase was time consuming, the meticulous planning of the project has paid off. All partners are very devoted and have a clear idea of what we will achieve together, says Mr. Hallgren. The aim of the project is to increase the use of biogas buses in cities within the Baltic Sea Region. The project was initiated by Stockholm Public Transport and consists of 12 partner organisations from eight countries in the region. Some partners are direct providers of public transport, but research institutes and city municipalities also participate as partners. Having a broad spectrum of partners is crucial for the success of the project. The possibility of interacting with and learning from each other is one of the great advantages of the project, says Mr. Hallgren. Apart from the 12 partners of the project, there are several producers and distributors of biogas, bus suppliers, bus operators and other stakeholders participating in the project as associated partners, providing input and sharing experiences. From a chemical perspective, there is no difference between biomethane and natural gas. The big difference lies in how it is generated. While natural gas is a fossil fuel requiring millions of years to materialize, biogas can be produced from what traditionally is considered to be waste in no more than 14 days. This also means that biogas is 100 % renewable, whereas natural gas is being depleted. Introducing renewable fuels requires strategic sustainable decisions Supply of biogas The second component regards the supply of biogas. Biogas as transport fuel is environmentally friendly; if there are no guarantees for a stable supply, no transport company will commit to any major investment, says Wojciech Gis of the Polish Motor Transport Institute in Warsaw. Therefore we have conducted a study about production potential of biogas in the Baltic Sea Region. This can serve as a basis to convince more transport companies to start using biogas instead of diesel as transport fuel. There is great potential to produce biogas in the region, he continues. Traditionally, biogas is produced in wastewater treatment plants and landfills. Another partner, the research and development institute ATI erc of Germany, is currently conducting studies using less conventional substrates to produce biogas as well as mixing biogas with hydrogen to improve energy efficiency. Traditional sources for producing biogas are not yet fully exploited and there is still a lot of potential to extend production in the region. But thanks to the environmental benefits of biogas, demand might soon outgrow potential supply and it is therefore necessary to investigate new sources for production, explains Petra Seidenberg at ATI erc.

10 Distribution of biogas Once the biogas has been produced, it has to be distributed. The third component deals with analysis and design of distribution networks, bus depots and fuelling systems. Compared to natural gas, which normally has to be transported long distances, biogas is often produced in or near city centres. In Stockholm a gas grid is under construction by Stockholm Gas, a subsidiary of energy company Fortum. Several of our bus depots get biogas already today, but more investments to extend the distribution network is under way, says Mr Hallgren. However, a network of pipelines requires substantial investments and for smaller regions distribution of other kinds might be more feasible. HOG Energy is investigating different possibilities to make distribution of biogas more cost efficient. These include analysing different composite materials for tanks and the feasibility of transporting liquid biogas. Use of biogas The last component concerns the use and supply of biogas buses. Since biogas buses are relatively new on the market the production volume is limited. Stockholm Public Transport is a major user and investor in biogas buses and therefore we have a unique opportunity to influence our suppliers through sharing our experiences with them, says Mr. Hallgren. Since production volumes for biogas buses are significantly lower than for common diesel buses, producers do not invest huge amounts in research and development. Through some of the research institutes involved in the Baltic Biogas Bus project, studies on technology development and emissions are carried out. Communication of results To disseminate the results of the project, a lot of effort is put on communication. All partners are to arrange at least two regional dissemination seminars during the course of the project. Normally these seminars are directed towards politicians and other stakeholders in the transport sector. So far, we have been able to reach out to several hundreds of people directly through these seminars, Mr. Hallgren says. Interest from media and the general public is also growing. At a seminar held in Riga the capital of Latvia last year, national television attended and information about the project was broadcasted on the evening news. The interest is not confined to Europe; several Chinese delegations have visited Stockholm Public Transport during the last couple of years to learn more about the advantages of using biogas as fuel. The project is divided into four major components, each interlinked with the others. The first regards strategies on how to implement biogas as fuel for public transport. There are already good examples of the use of biogas buses, yet these best practices are not widely used in European cities, Sara Anderson, biogas expert at Stockholm Public Transport, explains. One direct outcome of the project is a manual on how to introduce biogas buses in public transport. To a high extent, the manual builds on Stockholm Public Transport s own experiences since biogas buses were introduced in the Swedish capital almost a decade ago. Today, all public transport in the urban area of Stockholm runs on renewable fuels, of which biogas is an important component. In 2025 fossil fuels will have been phased out from public transport of the entire Stockholm region. The manual gives clear guidance to other cities, not only in the Baltic Sea region, interested in introducing biogas buses, Ms. Anderson continues. One of the partners who has already started to work on introducing biogas buses in their public transport system is the city of Tartu. The Baltic Biogas Bus project has been very valuable to us. The idea of using biogas is not new to us, but thanks to the project both funding and experience is available to us, says Margus Hanson, member of the Estonian parliament and vice mayor of Estonia s second largest city, which is currently developing an ambitious transport plan for the city where biogas will play a prominent part. Another partner, the member organization HOG Energy of Norway, has convinced the city of Bergen to invest in biogas buses in their public transport system. Norway is a country with abundant resources of oil and natural gas and investing in biogas is not the most obvious choice for decision makers. However, the city of Bergen understands the environmental benefits of biogas, says Stein Bjorlykke at HOG Energy. In Norway s capital Oslo, the public transport provider Ruter also a member of the project is making similar investments in biogas buses.
