Spreading the risk with an aggregator

Andusia have been in the EfW export business from the beginning. Establishing themselves as the number one independent waste aggregator, achieving a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2016. An aggregators strength is their ability to pull waste from a number of different sources, spreading risk of supply and enabling best value.

The value of aggregators was highlighted in ENDS waste and bioenergy’s recent article entitled ‘Gate fees will push EfW growth’. Discussing how UK EfW plants will play an increasing role in the UK’s energy mix, the article went on to look at the difficulties faced by developers of new EfW projects and how subsequently aggregators are the perfect solution to the fuel supply risk.

Andusia on Dutch Tax Proposals

Last week, the Dutch Government proposed a new tax with the aim of reducing carbon emissions: an RDF import tax of €30 per tonne, expected to be introduced in January 2020. The Netherlands is the largest off-taker of UK waste in mainland Europe and took in a total of 1.3 million tonnes of material from the UK in 2018 alone. The Dutch Government estimates that as much as 25% of the waste processed in the country’s EfW plants comes from outside the country.

After the announcement, Andusia Director, Steve Burton commented that incineration groups in both the Netherlands and across Europe were “lobbying hard” for this not to happen.
