The franchise holders in Umeå worked hard but could not find a local distributor or anyone who could deliver biogas at a competitive price, mainly due to the distances to the nearest production plant was to long. There is no facility for upgrading biogas to biomethane in Umeå and for the moment the biogas is used for production of electricity and heat. The high transport costs and the fact that oil prices collapsed during the time of the project made it impossible to compete with the price of diesel in the short term. The planned station was not built in Umeå, however, Umeå has all the prerequisites to provide biomethane in the future.
