Project related text:
The project consists in the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions due to switch from solid and liquid fossil fuels to natural gas in the industrial, public and residential sector. The fuel switch will be possible thanks to the construction of a gas transportation and distribution network in the region. The gasification is carried out by RilaGas EAD that realizes and manages the overall gas network.
Technology changes mainly consists of switch from old coil and oil boilers to new more efficient gas boilers. The technology used in the realization of the natural gas network is advanced and innovative both from a technological and a safety point of views. For example, the natural gas is supplied to the end users at low-pressure (0.5 bar) and consequently with higher safety standard compared to the other networks in Bulgaria.
Current status of the project Operational
Total verified emission reductions 0.0 t CO2 equivalent
