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

Aug 21 2009 Read 1117 Times

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.
