Andusia’s Response to the Environment Services Association Report on UK EfW Infrastructure

This week, the Environment Service Association (ESA) published a report; Energy for the Circular Economy: An Overview of Energy from Waste in the UK.

“There are strong signs that the UK Government now recognises both the urgent need for better resource productivity and stewardship, and the exciting opportunities it brings for jobs, innovation, growth and sustainable lifestyle, in short, for what has been known for years now as a more Circular Economy.”

Andusia is in full support of the initiative to develop the UK’s EfW infrastructure as this is a key focus for the company moving forward. Andusia and the ESA both see the urgency and requirement for an additional outlet for the waste produced across the country. (more…)

Can the UK handle an additional 3.6million tonnes of material in landfill?

This week, the RDF Industry Group has published a report detailing the effects Brexit could have on the RDF Industry. In summary, the report states that if Brexit were to damage the UK’s RDF export market then the result would be, the almost impossible task of, the UK having to find the space for some 3.6million tonnes of additional material going to landfill.

Although Andusia is not of the opinion that Brexit will have an impact on the RDF industry, it does support the initiative for the UK government to not only support continued RDF export but also growth in the UK waste and energy market. (more…)

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.
