We place considerable emphasis on air protection. RWE Gas Storage CZ mainly emits carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and methane (CH4) into the atmosphere. The company operates two sources with a permit to emit CO2, namely UGS Háje and UGS Třanovice.
UGS Třanovice is located in the Moravian-Silesian Region, which suffers from air pollution. For this reason, when the facility underwent major expansion and modernization between 2009 and 2012, we chose to use only state-of-the-art technologies friendly to the environment. In addition, NOx emission limits for newly installed turbines and compressors have been tightened by the authorities from 300 mg/m3 to a mere 30 mg/m3, and in the case of gas heating, from 200 mg/m3 to 80.
