The Project

Gegenstand des vorliegenden Klimaschutzprojekts ist die Umrüstung eines Kohle-Kessels auf erneuerbare Energien in der Svilosa Zellstofffabrik in der Donau-Stadt Swischtow in Nord-Bulgarien. Das Svilosa-Projekt ist das EU-weit erste Klimaschutzprojekt seiner Art, das nach den stengen Vorga-ben des Gold Standards zertifiziert wurde.

The project is situated in the Svilosa territory, near the town of Svishtov on the right bank of the Danube river. The aim of the project is to utilize available waste biomass residues – byproducts of wood processing at the Svilosa pulp processing plant as fuel. The biomass boiler has a capacity of around 14MW, equating to roughly 157,000 MWh per year, replacing roughly 117,000 MWh of coal-fired electricity.
