Mosenergo PJSC TPPs use the most environmentally friendly type of fuel

The main fuel used by Mosenergo PJSC is natural gas, the most environmentally friendly type of fuel, due to the fact that its combustion leads to much less harmful substances than other types. The share of gas in the fuel balance came to 99.38%. Mosenergo’s power plants as back-up fuels used both coal (0.34%) and mazut (0.27%). Diesel fuel share totaled 0.01% in 2020.

Emissions of pollutants are significantly below the maximum allowable level

Power generating boilers at the power plants are fitted with an automated environmental monitoring system, which allows the concentration of gas pollutants to be monitored in real time and, if necessary, enables plant performance activities to be modified in order to reduce emissions. As a result of subsequent work carried out on the boilers, boiler emissions did not exceed any permitted pollutant emission standards.

The Central Laboratory for Environmental Protection (CLEP) at the Mosenergo Department for Ecology takes measurements at the power plant boilers to determine the flue gas concentrations of nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide and carbon dioxide and to monitor the temperature of flue gases. The condition of the atmospheric air in residential areas near the TPP are also monitored throughout the year.

Mosenergo operates the mobile eco-monitoring

Mosenergo operates the mobile eco-monitoring based on a Ford car.
The car is equipped with the necessary equipment for on-site analysis of sewage, emissions into the environment or other polluting sources in the area of Mosenergo TPP responsibility in Moscow and the Moscow Region.

Mosenergo is the Leader of Climate Development

In 2017, Mosenergo PJSC won the contest «Leader of Climate Development», established by the Department of Nature Management and Environmental Protection of Moscow. The project «Integrated implementation of combined-cycle technologies at CHP Mosenergo PJSC took first place in the nomination „Contribution to the climate development of the region, the project“ Implementation of environmental policy requirements of PJSC Mosenergo PJSC was awarded a diploma in the nomination „Eco-Corporation of the Year of Ecology in Russia“.
