Waste Infrastructure Delivery ProgrammeWaste - its potential contribution to reducing CO2 emissions

Knowledge Transfer Network

February 2009


There are five pieces to the jigsaw

There are five pieces to the jigsaw

  • Energy sector – outputs and fuels

  • Waste market

  • PFI / PPP investment and methodology

  • Technology offering

  • Carbon footprint / WRATE


Energy white paper

Energy White Paper

Paragraph 5.3.44

Generating energy from that portion of waste that cannot be prevented, reused or recycled has both energy and waste policy benefits. Energy generated either directly from waste or through the use of a refuse derived fuel has benefits for security of supply. In addition, the biodegradable fraction of waste is a renewable resource. The RO will remain open to the biomass fraction of waste used in good quality CHP stations….


Hes and renewable heat incentive rhi

HES and Renewable Heat Incentive (“RHI”)

  • CHP - 30% saving over electricity-only

  • CHP - 7% of electricity and 10.2MtCO2 saved in 2008

  • Estimated potential 27.7MtCO2 by 2015

  • Fuel savings; > competitiveness; > security of supply

  • CHP displaces fossil fuel generation

  • Gas CHP up to 85% efficiency versus 50% for CCGT

  • EWP suggested CHP @ £16/tCO2

  • CCC estimated >4MtCO2 available at cost < £40/tCO2

  • Spark spread volatility


What is missing

What is missing?

Clear consistent signal about long

term price of carbon


Supports for chp 1

Supports for CHP - 1

  • Favourable treatment in Phases II & III of EUETS

  • CRC – zero carbon for CHP heat exports

  • Exemptions from CCL for GQCHP

  • ECAs – 100% 1st year capital allowances


Supports for chp 2

Supports for CHP - 2

  • Renewable CHP – 2 ROC/MWh for GQCHP

  • Feed-in tariff for up to 5MWe CHP

  • Renewable Heat Incentive

  • Planning – building regs & sust. homes code


Fuel producer fuel user model

Fuel producer / fuel user model

  • Industrial intensive energy users with / without CHP

  • Public sector energy users with / without CHP

  • Captive SRF burners (EfW) with / without CHP

  • Cement kilns

  • Co-firing with coal or biomass with / without CHP

  • [Landfill]
