[greenyes] Norwegian industry urges speedier landfill ban



-------------------------
Norwegian industry urges speedier landfill ban
Environment Daily 1888, 30/05/05
-------------------------
Norway's employers' organisation NHO has urged the government to move
forward by two years its proposed 2009 deadline for a total ban on
landfilling biodegradable waste (ED 11/06/04
http://www.environmentdaily.com/articles/index.cfm?action=article&ref=16852).
Noting that such a ban is already in force in neighbouring Sweden, NHO
director (and former environment minister) Siri Bjerke told Aftenposten
newspaper on Monday that the earlier deadline would "work to the
benefit of Norway's climate balance sheet". The government is
proceeding with the legislation despite sharp cuts in estimates of
greenhouse gas emissions from waste landfills announced earlier this
year (ED 20/01/05
http://www.environmentdaily.com/articles/index.cfm?action=article&ref=18055).
