REA welcomes government waste-to-energy guide

01 March 2013

REA contributed to public-facing guide which will raise awareness of waste-to-energy

A new guide on waste-to-energy was published yesterday by Defra. The guide aims to raise awareness of waste-to-energy among the general public and those wishing to contribute to waste and energy debates. The REA has provided input into the guide over the past several months.

Chair of the REA Bioenergy Group Alex Young comments: “The REA welcomes this comprehensive guide to waste-to-energy. It is a diverse sector with a range of technology solutions all contributing to delivering the transition to a green economy which is both low waste and low carbon.

“Waste-to-energy solutions can provide an important contribution to security of energy supplies, but the UK policy framework has not yet proven sufficient to drive a significant expansion in waste-to-energy infrastructure.

“This means an increasing amount of refuse derived fuel (RDF) is being sent overseas to countries which have fully embraced waste-to-energy. The REA continues to work with Government on dealing with the barriers to deployment of the right technology for the right feedstock in the right location.”

The REA also produced its own ‘Guide for decision-makers’ on waste-to-energy in 2011, which is available at: www.r-e-a.net/resources/pdf/63/EnergyFromWasteGuideForDecision-Makers.pdf
