Application processing

Applications for support will be processed at board meetings in the Business Sector's NOx Fund. Dates for board meetings second half of 2018 and first half of 2019 are given below. 

  • August 27th, ordinary processing of applications.
  • October 15th, no ordinary processing of applications.
  • November 19th, ordinary processing of applications.
  • December 17th, no ordinary processing of applications.

Priority of applications for support

The NOx Fund has decided to prioritize the support to applications to assure sufficient amount of capital for great measures throughout the term of the agreement.

Prioritization of applications can give the following outcome for each application:

  • Funding decision in accordance with support conditions
  • Reduction of support in relation with support conditions
  • If an application is postponed, a new assessment will take place at the next board meeting 
  • An application can be refused even though the measure originally qualifies for support

The practice for priority of applications is to be clarified but some of the important aspects are:

  • Efficient support rate (more advantageous with lower support rates)
  • Protracted duration of the measures (type of measure and presence in taxable area)
  • The amount of the NOx reduction and its duration during the term of the agreement
  • Size of the support together with allocation of adjoining projects / measures
