Neurath Power Plant Rated Germany's Biggest CO2 Emitter

IMMERATH, GERMANY - APRIL 03: Abandoned houses are pictured on a street on April 3, 2014 in Immerath, near Erkelenz, western Germany. The small town of Immerath and surrounding towns belonging to Erkelenz will be wiped off the map to allow energy giant RWE enlarge the huge open pit mine Garzweiler. A recent European Union study rated the Neurath power plant as the biggest emitter of CO2 in Germany, with 33.3 million tons in 2013, making it the second biggest in Europe. Owned by energy conglomerate RWE, the Neurath plant began operation in the 1970s and expanded with added blocks in 2012. It currently produces 4,400 megawatts of electricity annually, making it also the second biggest electricity producer in Europe. (Photo by Sascha Schuermann/Getty Images)
