Poland to welcome new biomass-fired facility
Norway-based green energy producer Tergopower is developing a biomass-fired combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Poland.
The plant, to be constructed in Lublin for a cost of around €140 million ($184.6 million), is set to have 40MW capacity and will use various feedstocks, including wood and straw biomass, to be sourced from local farmers.
Feedstock contracts for straw alone have been estimated by the company at €15 million ($19.7 million).
Tergopower believes electricity production at the Lublin plant will offset 230,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year and construction is set to take around 18 months.
