ASCO's current electricity consumption, including the operation of its own CO2 recovery plant, results in an annual consumption of approx. 90,000 kWh. The surplus electricity not used by ASCO is fed into the public electrictiy network as sustainable electricity.
With the operation of the solar system, self-sufficiency of 70 % can be achieved over the year. In March 2022, it was already 66 %.
"ASCO is proud to contribute to the environment with the electricity we produce ourselves. In conjunction with our CO2 recovery solutions, the name ASCO will from now on stand even more strongly for the active fight against global warming, and incidentally counteract rising electricity prices," says Ralph Spring, Managing Director.
