Abstract [en]

In 2013 the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency established new suggested limits for

cadmium in biofertilizer. Some biogas producers have already stated that they will have

difficulty to cope with the new suggested limits. This has started a conflict between the

environmental goals “Giftfri miljö” and “God bebyggd miljö”. In this study six biogas plants

has been studied to see how their biofertilizer relate to the suggested limits. They were

selected according to their location and the size of their foodstuff substrate. The results

demonstrate that the problem is associated with high cadmium concentrations in imported

foodstuffs. By influencing the Public Procurement Act, Swedish foodstuff could be favored

and the cadmium content decreases in the biofertilizer. The result demonstrates that

Linköping is the facility that is least able to cope with the suggested limits and Helsingborg is

the facility that has the best potential. The main conclusion of this study is that EU must work

together to achieve the goals that the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency wants to

achieve. If EU is working together to improve the Public Procurement Act, stricter limits for

cadmium concentration in foodstuffs may be established and thus the cadmium concentration

in foodstuff would be reduced.
