The Raahen plant of SSAB ranks as the top emitter in Finland once more

The EU emissions trading system saw a decrease in emissions from facilities participating in the program last year, according to the Energy Agency. SSAB’s Raahen steel plant, however, ranked as the largest emitter among Finnish plants included in the system. Despite this, SSAB aims to transition its steel production to be largely fossil-free by 2040, with an investment of around 4.5 million euros in Lulea, Sweden. However, this decision has been a disappointment for Finland economically, as it may not significantly reduce emissions from the Raahen factory in the near future.

Neste plans to stop oil refining at its Porvoon refinery by the mid-2030s and focus on producing low-carbon fuels and circular economy products. Meanwhile, Helen’s Salmisaaren coal-fired power plant had its coal phase-out schedule extended due to supply concerns caused by an energy crisis.

In terms of fuel consumption trends, natural gas consumption increased last year while peat and coal consumption decreased. Renewable fuel consumption remained stable from the previous year. Weather-related fluctuations in energy demand and production can influence emission trends. Total energy consumption remained constant last year with increased nuclear power production and decreased net electricity imports.
