Entsorga-Enteco 2009 - Focus on `Incineration & Renewable Energies`

Aug 21 2009

The generation of electricity and heat from renewable sources is gaining increasingly in vital importance. Not only on account of climate protection, but also as a substitute for the ever more scarce and more expensive fossil fuels oil and natural gas. The topic of ‘Incineration & Renewable Energies’ will accordingly be specially highlighted at Entsorga-Enteco 2009 – the International Trade Fair for Waste Management and Environmental Technology – from 27 to 30 October 2009 at Cologne’s exhibition centre.

The challenge is colossal – a task which involves reducing CO2 emissions over the next 40 years – worldwide – by some 80 percent in a bid to stabilise the Earth’s climate and to limit the rise in the global average temperature to 2 to 3 degrees Celsius compared with pre-industrial times.   To accomplish this challenge, the 27 member states of the EU have resolved in their climate protection package back in mid-December 2008 to increase the proportion of renewables in the overall secondary energy consumption (electricity, heat, fuels) to 20 percent by the year 2020. It currently accounts for just over 8 percent.
