US company to replace coal with biomass in Romania’s Paroșeni thermal power plant

Romania’s Ministry of Energy announced on Monday (27 November) that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with US energy company American Bio-Carbon Delaware for the adoption of biofuels in the Jiu Valley region (southwestern Romania).

The new “strategic partnership” will aim to transform the Paroșeni thermal power plant, located in the Jiu Valley, by using biofuel produced by American Bio-Carbon from Romanian biomass, replacing traditional coal.

“Through this strategic collaboration, not only do we align with European objectives of decarbonisation and sustainability, but we also manage to provide new economic and social perspectives for the Jiu Valley. We are proud to work alongside our American partners to transform a historic sector into an innovative and ecological one,” said Sebastian-Ioan Burduja, Minister of Energy.

The purpose of the memorandum is to establish a framework for collaboration on the transformation of the Paroșeni thermal power plant. According to the ministry, this project is expected to “substantially contribute” to reducing CO2 emissions in Romania.
