Waste incineration under the EU Emissions Trading System

Today, CO2 emissions from waste incineration plants are not included in the EU ETS. For Waste Denmark and RenoSam, Ea Energy Analyses has completed an analysis of advantages and disadvantages of including the waste incineration sector in Denmark or in a number of other countries in the EU Emissions Trading System. The project comprised calculation examples as well as assessment of methods of measurement used to document fossil CO2 and CO2 from renewable energy.

The project was initiated in December 2009 and completed in May 2010.
