  • Reasons to change the zero-rated criteria for biomass in the EU ETS Submitted on: Monday, March 16, 2015 - 18:07
    This study is published to co-inside with the European Commission's public consultation on revising the EU emissions trading system (ETS) for the period 2021-2030. The current EU ETS only accounts for smokestack emissions but erroneously rates the carbon emissions of biomass burning at zero. This is based on the assumption that the biomass emissions have been saved during the growth phase and accounted for in the land-use sector. Yet, as most biomass production lacks any kind of sustainability criteria and as land-use accounting is incomplete, this assumption is wrong and biomass usage can actually increase greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

This briefing outlining what steps the EU needs to take, and how ending these exemptions can reduce emissions and create employment.
