Waste Incineration getting away with CO2 emissions unscathed
Evidence shows that waste incineration has a high impact on our climate, yet it’s not part of any scheme to progressively reduce CO2 emissions. This case study written by Žiedinė Ekonomika uses the example of the “Fortum Klaipeda” waste co-incineration plant in Lithuania to illustrate how waste incineration plants could be included under the EU ETS at EU or national level and outlines at the potential impact such inclusion on driving better waste management in Europe.
