Netherlands: Company says data recorded last year proves the facility “meets the legal emission standards”
Deal has been described as one of the “largest” foreign investments in Croatia’s bioenergy sector
UK: Waste sector says the enforcement agency was “severely stretched” due to budget cuts even before Covid-19 hit
UK: Industry says open HWRCs combined with ongoing construction and manufacturing will support waste wood-to-energy supplies unlike last year’s major lockdown
UK: Fundraising continues until July 2021, targeting commitments of €500m and a hard cap of €750m
Denmark: Facility is due to replace heat currently sourced from coal, but a tender last year failed to attract a contractor
UK: Bioenergy and EfW investor says the move is the next “logical next step”
UK: Moves comes as another waste wood-fired facility reveals it has struggled to source feedstock
UK: Much-delayed biomass facility was due to be operational in December 2019, but currently a date for restarting it is “not clear”
France: The first European fund dedicated to renewable gas has backed eight deals in less than a year
UK: Vital Energi and AMP Clean Energy have been brought in to deliver the £16.5m project
UK: Sector feels reclassification of certain waste wood streams, which would only be allowed to go to biomass-fired plants, is unfair on panel-board manufacturers
Denmark: Heating element baskets of the air preheater have been damaged at the facility, which was converted to process biomass four years ago
UK: Developer expects to take 18 months to submit a planning application
This month: The EU ETS should not be extended to EfW plants, BWSC shifts away from EfW and bioenergy plant builds, Suez and BP work on the UK’s first CCS project at an EfW plant, still no EIA for the Barry biomass plant and Nature Energy is building another large-scale facility
South Africa-based facility will process about 145,000t/yr of feedstock into pellets, once it has been overhauled
Denmark: Company blames “series of negative events” as it confirms new plan to move away from biomass and waste-fired EPC builds
UK: “Misconceived” guidance is seeking to impose best available techniques (BAT) obligations on all waste sites, says UROC
UK: Process could eventually take more than three years after Welsh government confirms a further delay
UK: CCS and hydrogen could deliver more than 205,000 jobs nationally, helping the economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic

Wind, wave, tidal - there is plenty of energy to harvest at sea, and plenty of room for innovation to tap this potential for greater sustainability contributing to a key sector in the European Commission's Green Deal. Test sites from several countries have joined forces to strengthen Europe's position at the forefront of this area of R&D. An EU-funded project has taken their cooperation a step further.
An advanced biofuel plant under construction in Romania is at the centre of an EU-funded project to prove the environmental and economic benefits of producing cellulosic ethanol from agricultural residues.
Renovating energy-inefficient buildings is crucial if Europe is to reduce its carbon footprint. That is why an EU-funded project is making renovations faster and easier, helping homes to save energy - for the benefit of the general public and the planet.
EU-funded researchers behind a breakthrough solar-energy technology have also laid the material foundations for a new generation of digital displays that could surpass latest-generation OLED screens in brightness, colour range and energy efficiency.
Amid an urgent need to cut carbon emissions to combat climate change, EU-funded researchers have developed a new generation of highly efficient power plants for generating heat and electricity from biomass.
Waste is only waste if you cannot put it to good use! EU-funded researchers have developed a circular value chain deriving income sustainably from wet straw, biogas digestate and similar residues, via products such as fertiliser, fuel pellets and mushroom substrate and boosting energy generation in the process.
An EU-funded project has helped to drive the development and use of smart grid solutions across Europe. It has also provided external engineering teams with free access to state-of-the-art facilities to enable them to carry out their own research.
An EU-funded project has developed a European version of high-efficiency, next-generation solar technology and a low-cost manufacturing process. The innovative solar cells could boost a switch to solar energy and recharge European solar-panel production.
An EU-funded project has perfected the production of bio-oil and altered boilers to heat homes - recycling farm and forestry waste whilst cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
An EU project has developed highly innovative 'living' bricks that contain chambers of microbes capable of turning human waste, such as urine and grey water, into valuable resources, electricity and clean water.
More predictable than the wind and sun, tides have a massive potential when it comes to generating clean electricity. With tidal turbines already generating electricity within our seas, the challenge facing the industry now is to reduce costs. A consortium of EU-funded organisations has been using this knowledge to create a novel turbine able to make tidal energy more competitive.
A single test strip - the first platform to couple a methanol fuel cell with a biosensor - could act as a self-powered, easy-to-use, disposable, and low-cost test for diseases such as cancer, say EU-funded researchers.
EU-funded researchers have mapped out possible pathways to achieve the drastic technological, economic and societal transformations needed for the EU to become carbon neutral by 2050, meet its commitments under the Paris Agreement and lead global efforts to tackle climate change.
A Spanish start-up will soon start beta testing an innovative renewable energy solution, building on the results of an EU-funded project that helped develop a low-cost, low-maintenance and low-noise alternative to wind turbines.
An EU-funded research team has developed an efficient process to produce energy from CO2 - an innovation that could help Europe make the switch to a more sustainable, competitive economy.
