This report was prepared according to the conclusions of the Meeting of the Committee for the adaptation to scientific and technical progress and implementation of the Directives on waste established under article 39 of Directive 2008/98/EC (Waste Framework Directive- WFD) which took place in Brussels on 18th October 2013.

Within the conclusion of the meeting, Member States were asked to provide data for all of their Waste-to-energy plants (WtE) which are eligible for the application of R1 formula for the purpose of completing the analysis of the impact of various options for the climate correction factor carried over based on conclusions from technical meetings organized by DG JRC and DG ENV in July and September 2013. Member states were asked to provide data on R1 value, type of plant (Electricity only, Heat only and Combined Heat and Power-CHP), size and location or HDD for each eligible plant located in their territory. The deadline for providing the data by Member States was set to 30th November 2013. Waste to Energy State of the Art Report prepared by the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA)1 was used as a benchmark for the number of plants for which the data was delivered.
