Natural gas and biomass as fuels for RWE's Eemshaven coal-fired plant

Opportunities and impacts of using fuels other than coal at the Eemshaven plant

At Eemshaven port, RWE/Essent are building a 2 x 780 MWe coal-fired power plant, scheduled to come on line in 2013. The plant would emit around 8.4 Mt CO2 annually. Greenpeace commissioned CE Delft to make an approximate assessment of the potential for burning alternative fuels in the new plant and the likely effects on environmental footprint and profitability, based on its own expertise and publically available documents. The data presented provide an objective indication of the possibilities without any subjective valuation on the part of CE Delft.
