On 12 February 2019, Energy Community Secretariat experts presented the findings of the EU4Energy technical assistance aimed at developing new technical standards of emissions for plants incinerating or co-incinerating waste. As set out by Directive 2010/75/EU, the draft secondary legislation will regulate emissions of plants disposing waste or using waste as a fuel by setting emission limit values and continuous monitoring measures.
The transposition of the environmental acquis communautaire into Ukrainian legislation is to reduce environmental impact of energy utilization and to safeguard the health and well-being of citizens.
* The EU4Energy Initiative covers all EU support to improve energy supply, security and connectivity, as well as to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the Eastern Partner countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. It does this by financing projects and programmes that help to reform energy markets and to reduce national energy dependence and consumption. Over the longer term, this makes energy supply more reliable, transparent and affordable, thus reducing energy poverty and energy bills for both citizens and the private sector.
