Emissions

With regard to the management of radioactive substances, TVO always strives to keep any emissions well below both the emission limits set by the authorities and TVO’s own target limits, which are more stringent than the official limits. With the electricity production at the Olkiluoto nuclear power plant, approximately 12 million tons of CO₂ emissions are avoided each year, compared with the same amount being produced by fossil fuels.
