What Could a Plastic Incineration Tax Mean to RDF Waste in the UK?
It has been announced this week that the UK government could be considering adding a tax to waste companies which incinerate plastic waste. While Andusia supports the waste hierarchy and the idea of encouraging plastic recycling, we also believe that it is important that an “incineration tax” is not introduced under the guise of increasing plastic recycling.
The introduction of tax penalties for incineration needs to be very carefully considered as to how this might affect the macroeconomic factors in the waste market. The energy from waste market in the UK is in a delicate balance, and a new tax could destabilise the construction of new, and much needed, UK infrastructure of energy from waste facilities in order for the UK to move away from waste to landfill.

What effect will Brexit and uncertain exchange rates have on the RDF Market?
With Brexit still in the negotiation stage, there are many people across the waste sector who still see a perceived risk to the RDF industry. Brexit, along with uncertain exchange rates and other factors are on all our minds, which is why Mark Terrell, General Manager at Andusia, decided to tackle these issues at the annual industry event, Energy from Waste Conference in London.
The main issue with Brexit is that until the final terms are agreed we are unaware of the full implications it may have on the RDF export market. One thing we must remember though is that there will still be a demand for waste; European WTE plants will still need waste and we are still short of treatment capacity in the UK for many year to come.
