Polish firms urge rapid carbon permit allocation

Emitters losing patience as election aftermath exacerbates failure to meet September deadline

Polish firms have warned national authorities not to delay the allocation of carbon allowances to industrial installations for the EU emission trading scheme during a change of government prompted by elections last week.  In a letter to the environment ministry ceramics company Consus said the government had missed a deadline of 30 September to decide the installation-level allocation.  Firms needed their allowances to plan for the scheme's second phase, which begins in January, it said.  Earlier a group of trading firms called Forum CO2 made a similar plea.  See letters from Consus and Forum CO2 (Polish).
