For a comparative evaluation energy-related assessment of emissions during thermal waste treatment, the standard defines a balancing method with specified balance spaces covering all incoming and outgoing substances and energy flows required for balancing. This permits an unambiguous energy-based assessment of emissions from thermal waste treatment in comparison with other processes of energy or substance conversion. The extension of the concept of emission to climate-affecting substances, facilitates to assess the positive and negative effects of the combustion and substitution of fossil energy carriers on the CO2 balance. As conventionally practised in process engineering, characteristic values are used for the comparison of energy conversions and examples are documented for the types of thermal waste treatment plant in operation.
