Background

The project is proposed by chemical producer Zakłady Azotowe Kędzierzyn and electricity company Południowy Koncern Energetyczny.

The power station is proposed to include coal gasification technology with carbon capture and storage (CCS), and use up to 10% biomass in the combustion process.[1] The project would include a 300 megawatt lignite power station fueled with 1.6 million tonnes of lignite per year.[2]

The project has faced financial difficulties and was cancelled.[3]
