Some waste incinerators also produce heat or power. In such cases the waste stream will show up in national energy statistics and it is good practice to report these emissions under the energy sector. This could lead to double counting when in the waste sector the total volume of waste is used to estimate emissions. Only the fossil fuel derived fraction of CO2 from waste is included in national total emissions. For details please see Volume 5 (Waste)-Chapter 5 (Incineration and Open Burning of Waste) where methodological issues to estimate emissions are discussed.
