Greenhouse gas emissions from industrial installations included in the EU’s Emission Trading Scheme (ETSi) will be provisionally capped at just under 1.927Bt in 2013, the first year of the 2013-2020 trading period. This figure excludes new sectors, such as aluminium, and new gases, such as nitrous oxide, which will be added to the EU ETS in 2013. A revised cap based on emissions data on new entrants will be published in September, and a final cap may not be available before 2013.
