CIWM Report explores the future of trading RDF

The CIWM (Chartered Institute of Waste Management) have published a report entitled ‘RDF Trading in a Modern World’ exploring the range of factors shaping the future of exporting RDF, including the possible impact of Brexit.

The report highlighted findings from SLR Consulting, that the UK is likely to see a reduction in RDF exports due to new domestic EfW capacity and increased recycling rates. Andusia do not share the view that UK EfW plants will replace RDF exports, but it is evident that new UK EfW plants will replace the most expensive disposal option of landfill.

Andusia Respond to Latest RDF Industry Stats!

A recent report published by the Environment Agency shows that the RDF export market has decreased by 8% in the last year. As a market leading RDF exporter, Andusia has investigated these figures more to try and understand the implications to the industry as a whole.

Overall, 1,550,226 tonnes of RDF was exported from the UK in the first six months of 2018, in comparison to 1.685,709 tonnes in the first half of 2017. ENDS Waste & Bioenergy commented that “Interestingly, the harsh long winter does not seem to have led to more exports, while the impact of the very warm summer is unlikely to show any difference until the third quarter of the year.” (more…)

Is the UK Development of EfW Infrastructure Slow Due to Brexit Uncertainty?

Following a recent report by The ESA, it was claimed that growth in UK EfW infrastructure was vital to ensure a continued outlet for UK waste. A similar report by The RDF Industry Group claimed that it was Brexit that would have an overall effect on the industry, with political uncertainty affecting RDF exports. However, after much investigation, Andusia have come to a different conclusion.

Andusia believes that Brexit will not affect RDF exports, however, there does seem to be an effect on companies not wishing to invest in UK infrastructure due to political uncertainty. The result of this is that the UK could be left with a gap between 2019 and 2022 in which no new EfW plants are being built. (more…)
