RE: [greenyes] Environmental cost of emissions


Hi Alan ~

Thanks for the note.The article is only available in English; the link is
http://www.affaldsinfo.dk/user/2763/16243.pdf
<http://www.affaldsinfo.dk/user/2763/16243.pdf> -- see the bottom of page
25 and the table on page 26. The charges are only for the air emissions from
incineration.

However, as I noted, this same process of developing environmental
valuations has been used for other solid waste management techniques in
Europe. For example, it was used by Norway to set surcharges on landfills.

Best wishes,

John

relative environmental impact of the individual pollutants.


Interesting. A quick Google search did not turn this up. Is this article
available online in English, or can you provide another source for it?

I would particularly like to know if the fees apply only to air emissions,
or to all emissions.
