Kymijärvi III plant in Lahti is replacing Kymijärvi I plant from the 1970s. By replacing the old coal-fired combined heat and power (CHP) plant with a 190-megawatt bioheat plant, the city of Lahti is reducing its carbon emissions by 600 000 tons annually. Adding to that, Lahti has been chosen as the EU Green City in 2021.
