Climate & Environment

With the acceptance of the ambitious energy efficiency criteria for Waste-to-Energy plants the Parliament’s Environment Committee took an important step towards climate protection in yesterday’s vote on the Waste Framework Directive.

Efficient Waste-to-Energy plants, together with high recycling rates pave the way towards sustainable waste and energy management in the future.

For more information on how efficient Waste-to-Energy plants benefit the climate, and how Waste-to-Energy and
recycling goes hand in hand in order to divert waste from landfills, please see CEWEP Press Briefing “Recycling and Waste-to-Energy – together reducing CO2” and Communication Paper “Don’t waste waste - it’s a
resource” both available at www.cewep.eu
