New cooperation agreement between Gasum and IKEA Finland brings gas filling stations to IKEA stores. Gasum takes the bio waste created by IKEA restaurants and uses it to produce clean, local biogas for the filling stations.
This year saw the start of a new collaboration between Gasum and IKEA Finland. Gasum produces biogas out of IKEA restaurants’ bio waste and all IKEA stores in Finland will have gas filling stations serving vehicles from scooters to vans. Producing biogas out of restaurant food waste turns expenditure into clean, local energy. The new gas filling stations offer a responsible fuel option for IKEA customers and other operators as well.
The first gas filling station connected to an IKEA store was opened in Lommila, Espoo in early 2018. Gasum have planned to open filling stations in connection to all the rest of the IKEA stores in Finland as well. The Finnish IKEA stores are first in the world to have gas filling stations.
