Biogenic or carbon-neutral stack CO2 gas can be deductible from any company’s greenhouse gas inventory which is required for reporting under various regulations.
Part of waste-to-energy conversion can be considered renewable, due to the presence of organic compounds in incinerated waste. The question is therefore how much of this is biogenic CO2, and therefore what is the real carbon footprint of the heat or electricity produced by waste incineration or RDF plants. Previously estimated, this share can now be accurately measured thanks to Amesa-B, based on the principle of carbon-14 dating.
By differentiating between biogenic and fossil carbon dioxide, the company can quantify its actual greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint.
