Eco - friendly
An environmentally friendly or "green" lifestyle is no longer a matter of fashion, but a logical step that all of us – society and business – should take, if we want to protect the environment.
District heating in Salaspils is environmentally friendly, because we ensure sustainable production using renewable energy sources. Unfortunately, this cannot be said for many autonomous systems (e.g. gas boilers). In the production of “Salaspils Siltums” heat energy, the smoke, before entering the atmosphere, passes through a purification system, where solid particles are thoroughly cleaned from flue gases.
In 2019, “Salaspils Siltums” took a big step in the direction of climate neutrality - the first solar collector field in Eastern Europe was built on an area of 6.5 ha. Solar heat is one of the most advanced and successful forms of fuel-free heat production.
In addition to solar collectors, a new chip boiler house and accumulation tank were built. 90% of thermal energy is now produced from renewable energy sources, thus reducing greenhouse gases.
