Cargill, Vattenfall and Windpark Hanze accelerate the green energy transition in the Netherlands

Cargill and Vattenfall partner with Windpark Hanze in the Netherlands, who will build a wind farm that is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 350,000 metric tons a year, which is equivalent to providing electricity for more than 95,000 homes in the Netherlands per year once construction is complete. The onshore wind farm, consisting of 15 wind turbines, will be commissioned in the Flevoland province near the city of Dronten. It will have a total installed capacity of 90 megawatts and will go into full commercial operation in 2023.…

Vattenfall to cut supply chain emissions by half

Vattenfall´s strategy of enabling fossil free living within one generation has a full value-chain perspective. This means that Vattenfall not only works purposefully to reduce its own footprint, but also the footprint of suppliers and customers. As an important step towards a fossil free future, Vattenfall has for 2030 set an intensity target of 50% on supply chain emissions from goods and services, covering all supplier tiers. “Along with the great progress we have made in the last few years with regards to decarbonising our own operations, the relative impact…

SAS, Vattenfall, Shell and LanzaTech to explore synthetic sustainable aviation fuel production

Vattenfall, SAS, Shell and LanzaTech will together investigate the production of the world’s first synthetic sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) using the LanzaJet[TM] “Alcohol to Jet” technology on a large scale in Sweden. Instead of using virgin fossil material in the production process, the synthetic SAF will be produced from fossil free electricity and recycled carbon dioxide from district heating. The goal is that a new production facility will produce up to 50,000 tonnes of synthetic SAF annually, provided that an investment decision is made at a later stage. The synthetic…

Vattenfall commits to landfill ban and to recycle all wind turbine blades by 2030

Vattenfall has set ambitious targets in how to deal with wind turbine blades at end of life. An immediate commitment to a landfill ban on decommissioned wind turbine blades has been made. The next decade there will be an intense work increasing the recycling rate of wind blade components. Vattenfall’s ambition is to enable a fossil-free living within one generation and one important element to deliver on this is a significant growth in wind energy. To ensure this is done in a sustainable way, Vattenfall has a high focus on reducing environmental impacts…

Vattenfall increases its emission reduction targets – now in line with 1.5 degrees Celsius scenario

Vattenfall has decided to further increase its emission reduction targets for 2030 and beyond, aiming to reach net zero by 2040. The new targets are set to help keep the global warming at a maximum of 1.5 degrees Celsius and have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative, SBTi, providing external validation in line with the latest climate science research. Vattenfall is now one of the few leading energy companies that have taken this critical step. In October 2019,Vattenfall’s climate targets were approved by the SBTi to be in…
