Friends of the Earth report, “A Changing Climate for Energy from Waste?” highlights the fact that typical UK incinerators, generating only electricity, are unlikely to be emitting a lower quantity of greenhouse gases, expressed in CO2 equivalents, per kWh electricity generated than the average gas-fired power station in the UK. Rather, since gas-fired power stations emit a smaller quantity of GHGs per kWh, the presumption that energy from waste is always ‘good for climate change’ appears to imply a range of assumptions which are not always stated (or, perhaps, understood by those who presume this to be the case).
