[greenyes] Incinerator emission fees in Norway

Hi Alan ~

I found an English language description of the Norwegian incinerator
emissions fees (using the 2001 prices) in the book Addressing the Economics
of Waste, OECD, 2004, in Chapter 5, which is titled "Waste Tax in Norway".

It is available on the Internet at the site below for a fee; I also found it
at my university library.

According to an article in the Danish solid waste magazine Internationalt
Affaldsnytt, issue #4, 2004, Norway has implemented new fees for the
discharge of 14 pollutants from solid waste incinerators to reflect the
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.
