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…)

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 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.
