EIP-Agri Focus Group EIP-AGRI Focus Group Plastic footprint: Final report
This report presents the findings of the EIP-AGRI Focus Group 'Reducing the plastic footprint of agriculture'. Plastics can be found in each step of crop production, from containers to fertilisers to mulch covering the soil, the pipes irrigating the fields, and the packaging around the final products. The Focus Group experts discussed how the plastic footprint in agriculture could be reduced. They discussed existing solutions to reduce the use of plastic, avoid debris with biodegradable plastics, limit contamination from microplastics, collect waste in an efficient way, and recycle the plastics.
ICAC OTC Considers NOx Emissions Cuts from Non-Power Plant Sources
The Ozone Transport Commission (OTC) of 12 Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic states is considering rules and other means to cut NOx emissions from sources that include waste combustors, industrial boilers, and trucks. The member states have struggled to attain EPA ozone standards, especially in areas with persistently high ozone levels like New York City and Connecticut.

ZMS Zweckverband Müllverwertung Schwandorf Conversion of a lignite-fired power plant into a waste-to-energy plant using the example of the ZMS Schwandorf, Germany
With the establishment of the Zweckverband ZMS Schwandorf 40 years ago and the associated decision to convert the existing lignite-fired power plant into a waste-to-energy plant, approx. 8.25 million tons of CO2 equivalents were saved in the period from 1982 to 2018.
Utilization of Residual Lignocellulosic Residues and CO2 in Canada: The Beginning of a Whole New Era of OpportunityMichael Lugo-Pimentel, Xavier Duret, Bruna Rego de Vasconcelos, Thierry Ghislain, Jean-Michel Lavoie
Canada has been relying on the integration of its forest industry for decades during which lumbering was closely associated with the pulp and paper industry back in an age where CO2 emissions were merely discussed.
AVA Abfallverwertung Augsburg GmbH AVA (Waste Treatment Augsburg), Germany - Energetic and Material Recycling Under One Roof Leads to Considerable Synergies
The waste management companies of the city of Augsburg, the district of Augsburg and the district of Aichach-Friedberg, Germany, are active around the clock for the approx. 1.2 million inhabitants in their disposal area. With the initial operation of a biowaste fermentation plant in 2013 and 2016, AVA has become one of Germany's largest players also in the field of material recycling. The reciprocal supplementation and interaction of the plant components result in extremely positive synergies.

CLIMACT & ecologic Planning for Net-zero: Assessing the Draft National Energy and Climate PlansMatthias Duwe

A report by Ecologic Institute and Climact shows that the draft National Energy and Climate Plans presented by governments at the start of 2019 are in acute need of improvement. They suffer from inadequate targets and insufficient details on the policies and financing needed to move towards net-zero emission economies in Europe. Member States also need to do better in involving their national stakeholders in providing input to the plans, to benefit from their expertise and to get them on board for future policies. Good practice examples exist around the EU to serve as inspiration for the final plans due by the end of the year.
