Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One thing I can't find is any reference for thermal plants burning landfill-grade non-recyclables, whereas there is already a program to ramp this up in the UK. Perhaps it is subsumed in the "biomass" category, but it needs to be considered separately in a model. I for one would not plant crops for biofuels, but you can produce second-generation liquid fuels from any gasification technology. And that's about the only way you can sustainably drive your oil imports towards zero.
