CCUS development is the culmination of years of work at pilot projects focusing on an EfW plant and cement-producing facility
The EU wants to limit increases in bioenergy up to 2030, despite the fact the industry currently supplies 49% of all the bloc’s renewable energy jobs
UK: Facility already processes a mix of fuels alongside coal, but wants to focus more on waste-derived feedstocks
The UK alone has nearly 20Mt of capacity either with planning consent or going through the process
UK: Facility’s current permit allows it to take up to 438,000t/yr as the Environment Agency was “not satisfied” with a previously submitted air impact assessment
Denmark: Facility has faced criticism in the past for sourcing feedstock from countries such as Brazil after originally saying it would only use domestic sources
Bio-based industries such as paper, bioenergy, textiles and pharmaceuticals contributed €750bn to the EU economy in 2017, up €50bn in a year, according to an industry group
UK: Another year has passed since the developer said it was working on finding a way to turn around the troubled development
Denmark: 4.8MWth facility is currently due to be operational in October next year
This month: Three more waste-gasification hit the buffers, UK faces legal action over excluding EfW plants from its planned ETS, Covanta calls for “dialogue” with protesters and Hoddesdon and Uskmouth-based facilities move forward
UK: 40% of staff backed industrial action over plans that will see more than 200 redundancies
Small-scale project is due to be operational late next year, and a further 22 projects could follow in the region
Technology could “play a major role in” decarbonising industry and creating jobs
Government and green groups at loggerheads over plans to recoup lost wood sales by Poland’s state-owned forestry company as a result of the coronavirus pandemic

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.
What if a child's toy inspired an alternative to fixed wind turbines? An EU-funded project has developed a low-cost, highly productive 'kite' generator. Now nearing commercialisation, it could offer sustainable power to remote communities or people on the move.
As the world relies more on renewable energy to limit climate change, an EU-funded project has produced insights into how nanotechnology could support cleaner power and promoted university-business links for targeted future innovation in this field.
EU-funded researchers are on the verge of slashing the energy used by internet data centres to help cut CO2 emissions. By developing a model to optimise energy in real time, they aim to make the centres more efficient without affecting performance.
EU-funded researchers and partners are pushing the boundaries of the laws of physics, developing nanocomposite materials and nanoelectronic circuits to greatly improve energy, thermal and computing performance. This could make smartphones and other electronics more efficient and boost the potential of solar power.
Seven communities in south-eastern Europe plan to install biomass-based district heating systems thanks to an EU-funded project designed to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and strengthen local economies.
An unexpected discovery by EU-funded researchers has opened up a new field of photovoltaic technology that promises a more efficient and economical way to convert solar energy into electrical power.
Installing wind turbines in deeper waters is an interesting proposition as wind speeds tend to be higher and more consistent further out to sea. An EU-funded project has built a new type of foundation for turbines that overcomes most of the technical challenges and reduces the cost of offshore installation.
