Biomass in the form of pellets and wood gas are particularly sustainable fuels. Tests have shown that coal can be largely replaced by biomass coming from sustainably managed forests. The Amer power plant in Geertruidenberg, the Netherlands, is one of RWE’s biggest plants using biomass as a major source of fuel. Another power facility in the Netherlands that is partially fired using biomass, and which therefore makes an important contribution to reducing CO2 emissions, is the new, ultra-modern power plant in Eemshaven near Groningen.
As a leading power generation company in Germany and one of the biggest in Europe, the demands on RWE are high. The company is expected to offer our customers a secure and value-for-money energy supply in the future, while reducing CO2 emissions using innovative technologies.
