ESWET welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the initiative of the European Commission for securing clean air, water and soil, healthy ecosystems and a healthy living environment for Europeans.

As a preliminary statement, ESWET would like to underline the difficulty of assessing cross-sector options in the consultation process without a clear view of each sector specificities and nuances.

However, ESWET greatly supports the Commission in its objective to mainstream the zero-pollution ambition into all its policy developments and would like to underline the role of Waste-to-Energy technologies in pollution prevention and the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

To this aim, the paper describes the topics where Waste-To-Energy can make a difference:

  • Waste-to-Energy and pollution prevention
  • Waste-to-Energy and GHG emissions reduction
  • ESWET’s recommendations
