ESWET’s comments on the public consultation on the Action Plan towards zero pollution
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
