Improving air quality
Towards better air quality with Energetika Ljubljana
By connecting buildings to the district heating system and gas supply system, as well as reducing the number of households using fireplaces in Ljubljana, air quality has improved significantly. This is mainly due to reduced sulphur dioxide emissions, which have been reduced to levels 30 times lower than 30 years ago.
Through the use of a wooden biomass for the production of heating for the district heating system, the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) have been reduced significantly.
Environmental contributions by Energetika Ljubljana to air quality
The district heating system and natural gas supply system represent an important measure for the reduction in pollution with dust particles (PM10), which for the most part originate from individual fireplaces and motor vehicles.
Active encouragement of using environmentally friendly vehicles that use compressed natural gas (CNG or methane) and liquified natural gas (LNG). In 2011, the first public fueling station was unveiled in Ljubljana, in 2016 a second was installed and there is a plan for a third and forth by 2018/2019. In 2017 first LNG mobile station was opened in Ljubljana.
