Carbon & Energy – trading in CER emission certificates

34 024 emission certificates were sold in 2019, paid out on the basis of the 2017 figures. The market prices for the certificates are very low and, in addition, the valuation basis has been changed, which means that approximately 30 % fewer CERs were credited.

The contracts with BK Energia, the city of Itacoatiara, and myclimate were successfully renewed in 2016. This means biomass deliveries and future contributions to profit from CER sales are ensured. Due to the market development, however, major sales will no longer be possible.
