Emissions into air
Flue-gas emissions causing local environmental impacts are generated from incineration at energy production plants. The EU has set very strict limits for flue-gas emissions, which necessitates the use of best available technology (BAT). Our nitrogen oxide, sulphur dioxide and particle emissions have decreased significantly in our European production over the past decades through fuel selections and various flue-gas cleaning technologies.
All our plants operate in compliance with the terms of their environmental permits. Our plants meet the majority of the new emission requirements. We also have a world-class know-how in combustion technology. At Russian power plants, all emissions are limited in accordance with Russian legislation.
