Taking a Closer Look at the Flexus Bala

With experts predicting an extensive future for RDF export, and landfill tax experiencing a huge jump, hitting the hundreds next April, there has never been a better time to consider investment in baling and wrapping machinery.

RDF waste must be baled and wrapped for export. Buying the equipment to do so can be a daunting prospect for a business, although a significant investment, it ultimately guarantees to pay for itself.

Why not Bale and Wrap?

The UK Government’s tax on landfill increases year on year – 2023 will be no different, in fact due to inflation hitting a 40-year high, we’ll see a huge jump. Next April, landfill tax will increase in line with the Retail Price Index, which could see an increase of as much as £10 per tonne. Putting landfill tax in the hundreds for the first time.

With current landfill tax standing at £98.60 per tonne, then taking site gate fees and transport into consideration – we can all agree that landfill is an extremely unattractive prospect for those in the waste management industry.

The future of UK EfW Development

This month, Tolvik released their eighth annual report, ‘2021 UK Energy from Waste Statistics’. The report reveals EfW capacity is expected to grow from 14.9Mt/year of residual waste processed in 2021 to 19.4Mt/yr by 2026 but goes on to highlight signs of a likely slowdown in the development of UK EfW plants.

The report looks at EfW plants in the pipeline, stating that a number of projects post financial close have since ‘ceased being progressed, been cancelled and/or have been refused consent’ and ‘fewer new projects are now being actively brought forward’.
