Greenpeace (Germany) labels Vattenfall to be the most environmental unfriendly producer of energy in all Germany. Greenpeace’s study claims that Vattenfall issues 890g (gramm) CO2 per KWh (kilowatt-hour).

Greenpeace says that Vattenfall’s East German brown coal power plants are alone responsible for a total of 53.8 million tons of CO2 per year. And because Vattenfall is improving its infrastructure in Boxberg, Hamburg-Moorburg and Berlin-Klingenberg, it will add to those 53.8 another 18 million tons (of CO2) per year in the future.

Now take a deep, deep breath — and then head over to (upper right, in German, “Schwarzbuch Vattenfall”) for the study.
