Prolignis biomass energy plants operate climate positive. Thereby we take responsibility for our environment, economy and society.
We take responsibility for our own positive CO2 balance in accordance with our objective of sustainable corporate management that is socially, economically and environment-friendly. It goes without saying that Prolignis examines its in-house CO2 emissions very carefully and compensates emissions with equivalent carbon certificates to achieve an overall positive CO2 balance.
Whether we are dealing with day-to-day office management or our environmentally-friendly energy concepts and biomass plants, which we develop for our customers, one thing is certain: we always focus on a sustainably attuned corporate management approach, based on an assured long-term supply of energy with the renewable resource wood - our core competence.
Prolignis covers the entire value chain of energy generation, from biomass procurement and process management to the utilization of the remaining ashes.
Prolignis biomass plants operate climate positive. This means that more CO2 emissions are saved than emitted during combustion. Furthermore, the residual ash can be utilised as biological fertiliser.
This has the following reasons:
The transportation of the renewable resource wood creates CO2 emissions. By focusing on a regional utilisation of fuelwood, transportation routes are short and CO2 emissions are limited.
Prolignis biomass plants save 0.7742 g/kWhelCO2 over the entire life span according to a scientific study by the University of Augsburg in Germany
