ORLEN Południe has revealed plans to build a biomethane production facility in Poland. The plant will manufacture around 7 million m3 of biogas annually.

Daniel Obajtek, president of the management board of PKN ORLEN, said: “We are pursuing innovative business, which will allow the ORLEN Group and the Polish economy to develop in a sustainable manner.

“As the first petroleum concern in Central Europe, we have declared emission neutrality by 2050. This is an ambitious goal. Within this decade, we will invest more than PLN 25 billion (€5.5 billion) in projects with a positive impact on the environment, which will put us in a leading position in the process of energy transformation in central Europe.

“Biogas investments implemented by ORLEN Południe are part of the ORLEN2030 strategy. These projects will strengthen the competencies and market position of the company, which will strengthen the entire ORLEN Group.”

Construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of this year and be complete at the end of 2022.
