Assessing effects of projects on the environment

03-10-2013

For more than 25 years, environmental impact assessments (EIAs) have been required for projects likely to have a significant impact on the environment. A revision of the EIA Directive aims to correct shortcomings and to simplify and harmonise the assessment process.

Recycling Agricultural, Forestry & Food Wastes and Residues for Sustainable Bioenergy and Biomaterials (Part of the Project 'Technology Options for Feeding 10 Billion People')

15-07-2013

The purpose of this study is to examine and review biorefinery technology options that exist to convert biomass in the form of agricultural crop and forestry residues and waste from the whole food chain into biomaterials and bioenergy. It assesses the technological options, including the sustainability of the processes involved. The study forms part of a bigger project commissioned by the European Parliament’s STOA (‘Science and Technology Options Assessment’) office under the heading of ‘Technology ...

The purpose of this study is to examine and review biorefinery technology options that exist to convert biomass in the form of agricultural crop and forestry residues and waste from the whole food chain into biomaterials and bioenergy. It assesses the technological options, including the sustainability of the processes involved. The study forms part of a bigger project commissioned by the European Parliament’s STOA (‘Science and Technology Options Assessment’) office under the heading of ‘Technology options for feeding 10 billion people’. Advanced biofuels and innovative bio-based pathways based on wastes and residues show considerable potential and should be further developed especially as Europe is already seen by some as having a lead in relevant technologies. However, there are also considerable uncertainties for investors and indeed all market participants and thus a major task is to ensure good transparency and better information concerning the availabilities of the waste and residue streams, the opportunities for processing, and the benefits to consumers. In addition, because, by definition, bio-based economic developments necessarily interact with ecosystems, there has to be visible assurance that the bio-products are indeed environmentally preferable with respect to GHG emissions, water, soil and biodiversity compared with their fossil-based counterparts. The conclusion is thus encouragement should be given to this sector, but with enhanced transparency of all aspects of its development, and with equally strong sustainability safeguards.

Environmental taxation in the EU

02-02-2011

Environmental taxes are seen as necessary to achieve the EU's goals of emission reduction. One day they may become a resource for the EU budget.

Fisheries and Species Interactions : Modelling and Marine Protected Areas

15-05-2008

This briefing paper introduces the bioeconomic modelling and analysis, and focuses on the economics of marine ecosystem use and marine protected areas (MPAs) as a management tool. The description is based on simple graphical models and examples from mainly North-east Atlantic fisheries, though with references to studies based on mathematical and statistical modelling. Fisheries economic theory includes positive as well as normative elements. This brief includes discussion on both positive and normative ...

Promoting Environmental Investment in Central and Eastern Europe

01-02-2001

The accession countries in Central and Eastern Europe will require sustained economic growth in order to catch up with the existing EU countries – whilst continuing their integration with the EU. At the same time the 'acquis communautaire' should be taken into account which imposes enormous investment requirements on transition countries. This study seeks to examine the economic and policy context for environmental investments in the candidate countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
