Volkswagen will be shutting down coal power stations at Wolfsburg to reduce CO2

Volkswagen AG has announced that two coal powered power stations at the main Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg are in the process of being shut down to help the company reduce its CO2 emissions.

The news has come from current CEO Herbert Diess, who said: “I have already declined offers from several interested parties who wanted to buy our old Wolfsburg coal plants and rebuild them elsewhere in the world.”

Getting rid of the two coal plants will reduce Volkswagen’s CO2 emissions by 60%, which are being replaced with gas turbine systems.
