Bid to halve PPC pol­lu­tion

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greek author­i­ties have com­mit­ted to re­duc­ing car­bon diox­ide emis­sions from the coun­try’s lig­nitepow­ered elec­tric­ity plants by 50 per­cent by the year 2020.

The com­mit­ment is in line with a Euro­pean Union di­rec­tive aimed at curb­ing toxic in­dus­trial emis­sions.

The gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­son chiefly re­lates to the Public Power Cor­po­ra­tion’s large plants in Me­ga­lopoli in the Pelo­pon­nese and Aghios Dim­itrios, in Kozani, north­ern Greece.
