Climate protection is a global task, so that in our management of projects around the world, we are experienced in working in many different cultures and with professional staff based at offices around the globe, who can provide local support.
Carbon Climate Protection GmbH
Carbon Climate Protection GmbH (CCP) stands for RWE Power's cooperation with Austria's Carbon Projektentwicklung GmbH. The two partners focus on the avoidance of nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas that is 310 times more harmful than CO2. Besides CCP, the shareholders operate the joint-venture companies Carbon Egypt Limited and Carbon CDM Korea Limited. The firm contributes on projects designed to avoid nitrous oxide in nitric-acid production at the plants run by the Egyptian project partner Abu Qir Fertilizer Company and the South Korean Hu-Chems Fine Chemical Corporation.
Furthermore CCPs efforts led to the successful admission of the “N2O abatement in new nitric plants” ACM0019 in June 2011. Based on this new methodology the development of new N2O abatement projects is on track.
CCP, with registered office in Austria, supports the two project companies in verification and administration tasks. Also, their specialists act as developers and advisers for other RWE Power climate protection projects. RWE Power and Carbon Projektentwicklung each hold 50% in Carbon Climate Protection.
With some three million tons of CO2 units reduced each year, the two projects in Egypt and Korea are among our most important activities.
