ABSTRACT
Green technologies presented in Polish power generation are based on biomass. Poland has considerable potential for biomass produced using forest, agricultural, and municipal waste. Currently, biomass is used in several hundred power stations, co-incineration of biomass with coal powers 39 CHP and power plants. The largest establishments producing bioethanol are located in Starogard Gdański, Oborniki, and Wroclaw. The largest producer of biodiesel is the Trzebinia Refinery S.A., located in the villages of Surochów, Tychy, and Malbork. Electricity and heat are produced through cogeneration of biogas in 76 water treatment biogas plants, 94 biogas plants on municipal waste landfills, and 29 agricultural biogas plants. The Polish target share of energy produced from renewable sources in final gross energy consumption is projected to be 15 % in 2020.
