25/11/2010

Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action, announced on 25 November the submission of a proposal to introduce further quality restrictions on the use of credits from industrial gas projects in the EU ETS post-2012. The proposal has been prepared following an impact assessment, supported with public consultations.

Specifically, the proposed Regulation would provide that from 1 January 2013, the use of JI/CDM credits from projects involving the destruction of hydrofluorocarbon 23 (HFC-23) and nitrous oxide (N2O) from adipic acid production is prohibited in the EU ETS.
