New Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
According to the international experts of the IPCC the temperature of the atmosphere will increase by 0.3-4.8°C until the end of this century compared to the pre-industrial level; the sea level will rise faster than expected: depending on the scenario by 26-82 cm until 2100.
Emission reduction has been the prime focus in the Waste-to-Energy (WtE) industry, in past decades. Maximum allowable emission limits have been reduced drastically. At present the standards for WtE emissions are lower than for almost all other industries. This fostered the development of new and improved technologies in the gas cleaning system.

Recycling is gaining momentum every day across Iowa and around the country. More and more families are learning about the items that can be recycled at the curb. Recycling has even become a part of the curriculum at many area schools. Now Waste Management of Iowa is encouraging families and businesses to THINK GREEN® and recycle as part of the Box Tops for Education program.
CEWEP publishes the third edition of its report on the energy efficiency of Waste-to-Energy Plants (waste incineration with energy recovery) in Europe.
"The energy efficiency criterion (R1 formula) that was introduced in the Waste Framework Directive has proved to be an incentive for Waste-to-Energy plants in Europe to improve their Energy Efficiency", Ella Stengler, CEWEP’s Managing Director, stated on the occasion of the publication of the association’s third Energy Efficiency report.
