Trident Park ERF shortlisted for award
Viridor’s £223m flagship Welsh energy recovery facility, opened on 22 June, has been short listed for a national award.
The Trident Park facility is in the running for major building project of the year (over £50m) at the British Construction Industry Awards.
It is part of a £1.8bn UK investment programme in ‘next generation’ recycling and waste infrastructure.
Luxus to speak at recycling conference
Dr Christel Croft, technical director of Lincolnshire-based Luxus, has been invited to speak at the Competence Centre for Recycling Conference in Gothenberg, Sweden, on 17 November.
Her presentation on ‘lightweight recycled polypropylene for tomorrow’s automotive interiors’ has been selected by the CCR’s organising committee as they believe it offers an excellent example of the circular use of materials.
Croft said: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to share our progress to date on this important research project with a completely new audience – the eco-conscious Nordic automotive sector.”
Decc to host FiT webchat
The Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC)’s feed-in tariff (FiT) review team will be answering questions about the FiT consultation live by webchat on 16 October.
The team has held face-to-face workshops in Cardiff, Bristol, London and Edinburgh this month.
