Workshop: Carbon capture in Waste to Energy plants
Chair / Presidente: Thomas Astrup (DK)
Within recent years, carbon capture has received considerable attention in relation to waste to energy plants. From a situation when waste to energy in many countries provided a net carbon emission reduction, more renewables and less dependence on fossil fuels in the energy sector have decreased the climate benefits of waste to energy. As a consequence, focus is placed on reducing the carbon emissions. However, there are many open questions. For example: Which techniques are most suited for carbon capture in waste to energy facilities? In which situations should carbon capture be promoted and when not? Should the captured carbon be utilised and if so how? Or is carbon capture simply yet another emission control feature that has to be commercialised, implemented, and associated with limit values in regulation?
