The biomass plant in Motala
Since 2006, the Motala plant has been able to reduce its emissions of carbon dioxide by 92% by replacing oil with renewable fuels. Vattenfall continuously strives to optimise the combustion process and improve environmental aspects.
The fuel used in Motala primarily consists of biomass sourced from several suppliers in close proximity to the plant. Test-sampling and inspections of the suppliers are performed to ensure that the fuel is of the right quality.
