Lundsby Biogas: Sustainable Development Goals
UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals
Lundsby Biogas supports the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainable Development Goals are established to ensure sustainable development for future generations, both for nature, the environment and society.
UN member states have committed themselves to these world goals, and more companies are also committing to support the goals.
At Lundsby Biogas, we work to promote goals no. 6, 7 and 12.
Sustainable Development Goal #6: CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
The mission of this Sustainable Development Goal is to ensure that all people of the world have access to safe and economical drinking water by 2030. The goal further focuses on improving the water quality by reducing contamination, eliminating waste dumping and minimising the emission of hazardous chemicals and materials.
Lundsby Biogas delivers green, degassed fertilizer, contributing to the goal of improving water quality by reducing contamination of our drinking water. The agricultural use of degassed biomass as field fertilizer instead of traditional, unprocessed fertilizer reduces the nitrogen stripping into our groundwater.
Sustainable Development Goal #7: SUSTAINABLE ENERGY
This Sustainable Development Goal aims to ensure access to sustainable, modern and reliable energy supply at affordable prices by 2030. The goal further stipulates that sustainable energy in the global energy mix should be increased significantly.
Lundsby Biogas converts several tonnes of biomass to green and CO2 neutral gas in the most efficient way by designing and building complete turnkey biogas plants. By means of upgrading solutions for biogas plants, we enable supply of biomethane to the natural gas grid, providing more people with reliable and green energy.
Sustainable Development Goal #12: RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
This Sustainable Development Goal focuses on creating solutions that reduce our impact on nature by changing the way in which we produce and utilise goods as well as resources. The purpose of the goal is to halve the global food waste by 2030 and the goal further dictates that waste handling should be conducted in an environmental responsible manner, in order to reduce waste emissions to air, water and soil.
Biogas is produced from livestock manure, industrial food production residuals and other biowaste products from private households. The biogas production utilises materials, which would have gone to waste and contributed to waste problem for society as well as for the climate.
