Leading British exporters of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) have signed up to a new organisation to promote and represent the sector.
Membership of the RDF Export Industry Group includes Biffa, Veolia, FCC Environment and Shanks, as well as companies on the continent involved in the industry (full list below).
The 16-strong body of waste management contractors and operators says it provides a platform for the industry to communicate with third parties, including the Government and other key stakeholders, in the form of reports, presentations or other communications material.
It is being supported by Eunomia Research & Consulting, which is currently developing a report that will include evidenced-based information which considers legal, environmental and economic issues relating to RDF exports.
The report is due to be published later in the summer and will be presented to Defra as part of its current consultation on RDF.
The group has already submitted a response to Defra’s consultation on waste crime, which was seeking views on enhancing enforcement powers and other measures to tackle waste crime and persistent poor performance in England and Wales.
