A proposed grant of €11m for the construction of a 43MW boiler using renewable sources (biomass) by Roquette Frères (RF) won approval from the European Commission on 17 November. The boiler is expected to result in annual CO2 savings of 75,000 tons for RF compared with the use of natural gas. One of the key aspects of the approval is the expectation that the project will help promote the use of biomass technology on a commercial scale. The Commission assessed the scheme and concluded that the likely impact on competition and trade were limited and the project would make a positive contribution to achieving climate and energy objectives under the EU 2020 environmental objectives.
