Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "The report is focused on estimating the 'carbon price' of the direct release of CO2 that derives from the incineration of fossil-based feedstock such as plastic.The carbon associated with wood, paper, card, kitchen and garden waste can be classified as 'biogenic carbon', whereas carbon derived from oil (including plastics), natural gas and coal is known as 'fossil carbon'. This report's financial calculations focus on fossil carbon."
