What are the benefits of baling and wrapping your waste?

Each year the UK sends approximately 12million tonnes of waste to landfill. For each tonne you contribute to landfill you pay £88 in landfill tax, plus a gate fee and transportation costs, however, there is an alternative that not only offers environmental advantages but also financial savings for you!

Your waste could be collected and sent for recovery across the UK and Europe where it will be used in EfW plants to produce heating and energy. (more…)

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…)

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.

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…)

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.

Recent figures show that there is growing capacity in Germany and Sweden where there is a drive to expand new and existing facilities. (more…)
