Skövde Slakteri

From steam to steam – but make it climate-smart

The mission

Skövde Slakteri has been operating for over forty years. For its production, the slaughterhouse needs steam something that was previously produced through the use of fossil fuels. In order to continue running a sustainable business, they decided to phase out the fossil fuel, replacing it with a biofuel: a pellet-fired plant for steam production.

BKtech BioOne Steam 1,3 MW for steam production

Interesting facts:

Skövde Slakteri is Sweden's largest privately owned slaughterhouse, and works exclusively with Swedish farms and Swedish meats.

The process

The agreement between BKtech and Skövde Slakteri involves the delivery of a 1.3 MW modular bioenergy plant that will produce the steam needed for the slaughterhouse’s operations. Fossil fuel combustion will be phased out, to be replaced entirely by biofuel – wood pellets – in the new bioenergy plant.

Investing in bioenergy for the future

Skövde Slakteri has been in business for over forty years and has now made the decision to go fossil-free. Listen to Björn Hellner, Director of Maintenance, as he discusses sustainable production and describes what the collaboration with BKtech has been like.

The results

Since Skövde Slakteri is certified according to the GFSI standard FSSC22000, holds a KRAV certification and meets the standards of the EU organic logo , it is imperative to have a sustainable production throughout the chain. Therefore, the cooperation between BKtech and Skövde Slakteri is important from both a climate and certification perspective, and BKtech will deliver the new bioenergy plant in 2022 according to the agreement. We look forward to this partnership and our future together with Skövde Slakteri.
