The operation of the sewage sludge combined heat and power plant will generate additional emissions. At the same time, the decommissioning of the coal blocks will eliminate all emissions generated by the operation of the coal blocks. As a result, fewer airborne pollutants will be released into the environment in the future.
That’s because compared to the coal blocks, the sewage sludge CHP emits just 2% of the previous quantities of dust, NOx and mercury pollutants into the environment every year.
By complying with stricter emission limits than required by law, the resulting immissions of the power plant are irrelevant according to air quality control regulations. This means that there will be no negative impact on humans, animals or the environment.
