Green technologies presented in Polish power generation are based on biomass. Poland has considerable potential for biomass produced using forest, agricultural, and municipal waste. Currently biomass is used in several hundred power stations, co-incineration of biomass with coal powers 39 CHP and power plants. The largest establishments producing bioethanol are located in Starogard, GdaÃ Âski, Oborniki, and Wroclaw. The largest producer of biodiesel is the Trzebinia Refinery S.A., located in the villages of Surochów, Tychy, and Malbork. Through cogeneration with biogas electricity and heat are produced in 76 water treatment biogas plants, 94 biogas plants on municipal waste landfills, and 29 agricultural biogas plants. In the near future Poland expects further development of bioenergy technologies.
