European Commission publishes ‘naughty list’ for 2015 EU ETS compliance

Around 95 installations have been marked by the European Commission as being non-compliant for not surrendering enough carbon allowances or offsets against their emissions for last year, according to data published this week.

UK-based Teesside Integrated Iron & Steel Works, the majority of which closed down in 2015, handed in 11.7 million units against its emissions of 15.7 million tonnes last year, making it the facility with the largest shortfall.

Second largest was Romania’s coal-fired Romag Termo power station, which only surrendered 2.2 million units against 4.4 million tonnes of emissions.
