Good Practice Guidance for Assessing the GHG Impacts of Waste Incineration

The United Kingdom Without Incineration Network (UKWIN) launched a good practice guide for assessing the greenhouse gas (GHG) impacts of waste incineration. The Guidance has been welcomed by environmental organisations including Friends of the Earth and Zero Waste Europe.

Created in response to the inconsistent quality of incinerator carbon assessments, this Guide is intended to be used both by those carrying out climate assessments and those reviewing or evaluating those assessments. It provides ten recommendations based on an extensive review of the approaches being used by industry practitioners and academics.
