4. Institutional aspects and the waste-incineration tax

In this project, we investigate how a tax on incineration of waste with fossil origin affects the waste treatment. We also investigate how institutional aspects affect the consequences of such a tax. To this analysis, we add a discussion on what techniques are available for transferring the signal of the tax to individuals and organisations who can separate the material with fossil origin from the rest of the waste.
