Carbon & Energy – trading in CER emission certificates

No emission certificates were sold in 2018 because the settlement cycle was postponed (previous year: EUR 0.4 million). The proceeds will be received in the first half of 2019.

The contracts – ending in 2016 with BK Energia, the city of Itacoatiara and myclimate – were successfully renewed. This means biomass deliveries and future contributions to profit from CER sales are ensured. The prices for emission certificates have fallen massively and the basis for calculating compensation has also been changed. Major sales will no longer be possible.
