Are we entering an age of decommissioning?

Speakers' presentation ~ Webinar on 15th June 2021

In recent years, we have seen a number of developments that would suggest decision-makers recognise that waste incineration is incompatible with long-term climate goals. Yet does this match with the reality on the ground? Are we still living through a time of waste incineration within a linear economy, or are we entering an age of decommissioning?

This webinar went into great depth to answer these questions:

  • Why is waste incineration incompatible with a circular economy and how is this becoming more recognised?
  • Is waste incineration compatible with the increasing need for and adoption of climate supportive, carbon-neutral policies?
  • What is happening at the European level to prohibit funding and support for increasing incineration capacity?
  • What are the transition strategies available for municipalities to help move away from incineration?
