Volvo’s Daqing factory running to run on 83% biomass power

March 29, 2021 |

In China, Volvo Cars’ manufacturing plant in Daqing, China is now powered by 100 per cent climate neutral electricity and follows in the footsteps of the company’s other large Chinese manufacturing plant in Chengdu, which reached the same milestone last year.

Going forward, the Daqing plant in Heilongjiang province will be powered by electricity generated from biomass (83 per cent) and wind power (17 per cent), which is estimated to bring down the plant’s annual CO2 emissions by around 34,000 metric tons.

More specifically, the biomass power plants that supply the Daqing site are using locally and sustainably-sourced agricultural and forestry residues.
