Brown coal allowed in Poland due to energy concerns

Dirty coal will again be allowed due to a shortage of clean energy in Poland.

“Lignite, the more polluting type of coal, is used to generate electricity but has been banned in home furnaces in Poland for several years to improve air quality.”

“Poland is heavily dependent on coal, with around 80% of its power production provided by coal-fired plants. In past years, the country has had the European Union’s highest ratio of premature deaths due to air pollution.”
