Brussels 16 March 2016 – CEMBUREAU has taken note of the report published today by Sandbag, focusing on cement and the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU-ETS). In this regard, we partly share the views of Sandbag such as the need for innovation funding to stimulate breakthrough technologies, a closer alignment between allocation and production in the form of a dynamic allocation and a stronger recognition of the role of alternative fuel and raw material use in emission reductions, with the inclusion of a landfill ban on recoverable and recyclable raw materials.
In its response, CEMBUREAU indicated that Horizon 2020 projects should provide support to three EU Directives, namely the energy efficiency, renewable energy and the energy performance of buildings Directives.
In the context of the debate on the future of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU-ETS), one of the issues on the table is the ability (or not) of a sector to pass on to their customers additional costs arising from to the purchasing of CO2 allowances.
