4. Commission calls for focus on renewable energy

Record Control Number : 16993

Date : 2001-06-26

Category : Event

General Information :

The European Commission's Research Directorate General is hosting a conference on the Integration of renewable energy sources and distributed generation in energy systems in Brussels on 25 and 26 September to discuss the best ways to increase the use of renewable energy.

The benefits from the increased use of renewable energy are not only environmental protection (minimising the greenhouse effect and air pollution) , but also increasing the security of energy supply by reducing dependence on oil, gas and coal imports, creating new jobs in the energy sector and increasing industrial competitiveness; all EU policy objectives. To help realise these benefits, the conference aims to review examples of best energy technology practice from across Europe, then evaluate the potential of these technologies, before finally identifying further research opportunities and other implementation mechanisms.

A move to renewable energy implies a change from the current situation where energy supply is dominated by the centralised combustion of fossil fuels to a situation where a huge number of small producers are connected to the grid. The conference will pull together 400 people representing all relevant stakeholders to discuss this transition.

There are very many views about the best path to a future energy framework. This can be seen clearly in the recent discussion on renewable energy between the European Council and the European Parliament. The European Parliament believes that the EU should set mandatory national targets for the proportion of energy produced from renewable sources while the EC believes these targets should only be indicative. The agreed compromise is that targets will initially be indicative, but if Member States fail to make progress against those targets, then the Commission may propose mandatory targets.

One issue that is still unresolved is the EC proposal to include the use of waste incineration as a renewable resource. The EC wants to include it as a renewable energy source, but the European Parliament is strongly opposed to this, not least because burning waste goes against the aims of the 'waste treatment hierarchy' within another EU directive. From the point of view of energy policy, the European Parliament's stance is that more energy is saved by avoiding waste in the first place and recycling waste than burning it. However, pressure for 'instant' waste disposal options might challenge this position. While the EC conference in September cannot map the whole of Europe's route to a sustainable energy future, it should provide some signposts to the way.

5. Community research on paper processing reduces pollution and costs

Record Control Number : 17005

Date : 2001-06-28

Category : Event

General Information :

The benefits from EU funded research into paper processing will be on show at a media event taking place in Brussels on 6 July.

Traditionally the paper industry has been a voracious user of water and energy and produced large quantities of polluted effluent. The industry still uses more than 8 million m3 of water per day and produces effluents containing chlorine and organic matter with a high oxygen demand.

Since 1985, over one hundred projects involving EU-funding in the region of 150 million euro have found innovative ways to reduce the environmental impact of paper processing. In particular work has concentrated on water treatment technologies. This has allowed the industry to begin to change to closed-loop water systems, with a consequent substantial reduction in fresh water consumption.

Innovative research solutions, including improved process monitoring and control, chlorine-free bleaching, membrane separation and biotechnological treatments have all contributed to substantial reductions in environmental impact.

The results from another project partnership, Ecotissue, give a dry method of producing absorbent tissue papers. This offers great reductions in water and energy use.

The media event will showcase a number of these technologies and explain how they have reduced the use of fresh water, energy and chemicals, and prevented effluent. Participants can also visit the VDK paper mill just outside Brussels and see a pilot installation of a 'paper kidney'. This water treatment facility uses a combination of anaerobic thermophilic and aerobic biotechnological treatments, and membrane technology to give continuous recycling.

11. Maximising the benefits of Galileo for aviation

Record Control Number : 17009

Date : 2001-06-28

Category : Tender

General Information :

The European Commission's Energy and Transport DG is inviting tenders for a study on a roadmap for the introduction of satellite navigation in European air traffic management (ATM) .

The high level group report on the single European sky emphasised the need to agree a strategic management programme for the introduction of new technology with all stakeholders. The present study is focusing on the navigation component of such a strategic management programme. Satellite navigation as one of the major components of the ACAO CNS/ATM concept.

Galileo is expected to facilitate the use of satellite navigation by the aviation sector, since it is designed to be a civilian owned constellation of navigation satellites offering service guarantees, independent from, but fully interoperable with GPS.

The study aims at exploring the technical, financial and institutional issues that are key to allowing aviation to take the maximum benefit of Galileo and defining the precise measures that need to be taken to that effect. It includes, but is not limited to, a cost/benefit analysis for the aviation case.

The final goal is to prepare a high level European strategy for the implementation of satellite navigation for ATM that can be widely supported by all stakeholders. A second, but equally important objective, is that by clarifying the conditions and associated actions that are key to render Galileo beneficial to aviation, the commission services can have a clear view on aviation needs and can use this input for their future proposals on Galileo.
