Rovaniemi Airport is heated Carbon-free

The climate impact of airports originates from the heating of buildings and the energy consumption of vehicles, so the airport operator Finavia and Napapiirin Energia ja Vesi (Neve) have entered into an agreement on the heating of Rovaniemi Airport with carbon-neutral district heating. Vihreä Lähilämpö (Neve’s carbon-neutral district heating product) is an excellent choice for Rovaniemi Airport, because it supports the key measures to reduce carbon dioxide emissions Finavia has identified in its climate programme. Neve produces its district heat from renewable and locally sourced fuels.

“We have worked systematically to reduce the climate impact of our airports for over ten years now. We reached an important milestone two years ago when all our airports became carbon neutral. Our objective is to achieve zero net emissions in 2030, and we continue on our journey towards emissions-free airports. The cooperation with Neve is an important step along this journey,” says Henri Hansson, SVP, Airport Infrastructure, Sustainability, Safety, Security & Compliance at Finavia. “In order to eliminate our carbon dioxide emissions, we must focus on increasing the use of renewable energy and improving our energy efficiency,” Hansson points out.

“We have made significant investments in reducing our emissions, and our objective is to make all our production emissions-free by the end of this decade. Thanks to our Vihreä Lähilämpö, we can offer carbon neutral district heating to the majority of our customers,” states Kristian Gullsten, CEO of Neve.

Gullsten continues that the company generates heat mainly from wood-based fuels: wood chips and wood industry byproducts such as dust, bark, cutter shavings and recycled wood. Neve is also planning to use energy generated by burning dried sewage sludge in the near future.

See millions of stars from a premium class hotel (or, if you're lucky, even the Northern Lights) ✨

✨@glass_resort on the Arctic Circle opens at 30th September.

✨In all probability, there won't be snow by then as the first snow is normally due sometime between October and November. Permanent snow arrives later.
