Direct CO2 emissions from the PGNiG Group installations participating in EU ETS in 2016-2017

Currently, 18 installations of the PGNiG Group are included in the EU ETS. In 2017, the volume of carbon dioxide emission amounted to 6,342,330 Mg and was slightly higher than in previous years. PGNiG TERMIKA EP recorded a drop in CO2 emissions in its heating plants due to higher average annual temperatures during the heating season. PGNiG TERMIKA plans to implement modernisation projects that will improve energy production efficiency and change fuel (transition from coal to gas), which should reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As free allowances of CO2 emission rights decrease year by year, there is a need to purchase additional emission rights.

Reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

The PGNiG Group places great emphasis on reducing gas and dust emissions to the air. This applies in particular to installations subject to integrated permits and participating in the EU ETS. In 2017, all required emission standards were met. In addition, The PGNiG Group is systematically reducing the amount of pollutants generated by transportation, combustion processes in heat sources, fuel reloading and technological processes, such as gas combustion at flares, gas venting, emissions from compressor stations and compressors. The methods of reducing emissions of pollutants into the air include on the use of gas as a low-emission fuel, monitoring of fuel consumption, reducing the energy intensiveness of technological processes and modernising or replacing heat sources used for own needs.

G4-EN21

NOx, SOx, and other significant air emissions

Oil and gas exploration and production activities, gas distribution, and modernisation, maintenance and repair works of the PGNiG Group generate air pollutants such as gases (SO2, NOx, CO, CO2, CH4), dust, hydrocarbons, aldehydes, alcohols, acids, heavy metals, metallic and non-metallic elements.

In 2017, air emissions of pollutants other than CO and CO2 were on a decline as a result of using more modern coal combustion technologies.
