Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) Waste Implementation Programme (WIP) director John Burns said the new strategy would have more on technology choice, infrastructure, and combining commercial and industrial (C&I) and municipal waste into combined treatment and infrastructure facilities.
There will also be more about how to meet landfill directive targets and more on carbon, he added.
Speaking at the London Remade Leave no footprint launch, he said: Timing is often very critical in success or failure in this sphere.
He added that London Remades launch came at the right time, with several related Government strategies and reviews imminent. In addition to the Waste Strategy, more emphasis on energy-from-waste is expected in the Energy Review and Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) are also under review. Burns added that enhanced capital allowances for Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) facilities had also been mentioned in the Chancellors pre-budget report.
The policy and financial environment is now right and conducive for investment in waste, the rest is up to the private sector and London Remade is there to help.
