We’re working to improve our business by incorporating low emission and renewable energy technology into our porfolio. For example, by participating in the Callide Oxyfuel Project and integrating solar technology with our coal-fired Kogan Creek Power Station through the Kogan Creek Solar Boost Project.
CS Energy reports its greenhouse emissions, energy consumption and energy production to the Australian Government under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007.
Other air emissions
CS Energy’s power stations also emit oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and sulphur (SOx) as a by-product of combusting fossil fuels. Australian black coal has a relatively low sulphur content and modern power stations have technologies in place to reduce NOx emissions. For example, our Callide C and Kogan Creek power stations are fitted with low-NOx burner technology. Data on these emissions is available from the National Pollutant Inventory.
Fly ash management
Ash is a by-product of the combustion of coal at CS Energy's Callide and Kogan Creek power stations. These stations produce ash in two forms, fly ash, which has the consistency of talcum powder, and furnace ash, which is like coarse sand.
