A new online tool for RDF and SRF exporters has been launched.
The WasteFlow Online site, which shows which facilities in Europe are receiving and processing the waste and their capacities, has been produced by consultancy Monksleigh which says it will allow users to optimise their trade routes and facilities placement.
Operators are able to see which ports companies are using to move their waste around Europe and the data allows interested parties to assess where the greatest supply and demand for the materials are.
The site features interactive maps that include the reach of both the export and import ports based upon a maximum two hours drive time in the UK and two and a half hours in Europe.
The data underpinning the map comes from publicly available datasets from private and public sector sources, including the Environment Agency.
David Woolford, senior business adviser with Monksleigh said: “We want to reach out to as many businesses as possible to help them accelerate their understanding by sharing our knowledge to help this relatively new market develop further.”
MRW previously reported that Monksleigh had developed an interactive map of energy-from-waste facilities that were either currently operating or under construction in England and Wales.
