"Carbon (Dioxide) trading is now the fastest growing commodities market on earth.....And here’s the great thing about it. Unlike traditional commodities markets, which will eventually involve delivery to someone in physical form, the carbon (dioxide) market is based on lack of delivery of an invisible substance to no-one.

The top Scottish judge upheld a ruling by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (Sepa), which had previously welcomed the scheme, that under EU waste rules this was illegal.
In fact it turns out that Sepa let Longannet continue burning sewage pellets, illegally, right up to April this year – the resulting ash being sold to a firm called Scotash, which turns it into building materials. Now Scotash itself buys the pellets, to reduce them directly to ash in an EU-compliant incinerator. So, it is legal under EU waste rules to turn sewage into ash – it’s just that it is not legal to use it to make electricity on the way. .."
