This woodchip power plant replaces 20 diesel generators which would burn about 10-15 million litres of diesel each year. Our plant thus prevents annual emissions of roughly 44 000 tonnes of CO2. The plant also prevents emissions of methane gas amounting to a further 113 000 tonnes of CO2 equivalents each year.
For this performance, the plant receives carbon emission certificates (Certified Emission Reductions, CERs). These CERs are traded through the European Emissions Trading System and help companies and governments to achieve their climate targets.
At the beginning of 2011, Precious Woods gained the Swiss myclimate foundation as a renowned strategic partner for its CER management.
