Swedish energy giant Vattenfall plans to re-engineer its coal-fired power stations in Denmark so that they can replace up to 724,000 tons of coal annually with biomass
Swedish energy giant Vattenfall has announced a major plan to re-engineer its coal-fired power stations in Denmark so that from 2018 they can replace up to 724,000 tons of coal annually with biomass and save the atmosphere 1.5 million tons of CO2, a 27% reduction, reports financial daily newspaper Børsen.
 
The plan, which Vattenfall has dubbed MaxBio, will form a significant part of the energy concern's efforts to reach the goal of making its energy production in the Nordic region CO2-neutral by 2030.
 
Vattenfall's Nordic chief Hans von Uthmann told Børsen: "It is our goal to make electricity a completely clean product, which customers can use with a clean conscience in relation to global warming. Overall, at Vattenfall we are fully under way with converting our power stations and production so that we can live up to society's expectations of clean and climate-friendly energy."
 
Uthmann adds that Vattenfall's CO2 reducing plans in the Nordic region up to 2016 will involve investments totalling more than DKK 60bn (USD 10.4bn), with the MaxBio plan accounting for more than DKK 5bn (USD 870m).
