State Company’s Dirty Power Plants

Four of Europe’s dirtiest power plants are operated by Sweden’s state energy giant Vattenfall, according to a new list drawn up by the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF).

The conservation organisation has looked at which of the continent’s plants emit the most carbon dioxide, and says the Swedish company’s four sites in Germany are among the 16 worst offenders.

Vattenfall denyies the WWF’s claims that it isn’t bothering to invest significantly to tackle emissions and says it is leading the way when it comes to researching and developing so called ”clean coal” technology.
