Italys National Allocation Plan for 2008-2012 under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme was finalised in early March 2008. Italy has agreed to cut C02 emissions from sectors covered by the ETS by 13.65 million tonnes. The total cap for Italy for the period will be 201.63 million tonnes, with the addition of several new industrial processes. The emissions quota for new industrial plants will be on average 16.93 million tonnes per year. The share of emissions that can be offset by credits created in developing nations is 15% of the total amount, except for fuel-fired power plants (up to 19.3%).
