EfW gains from subsidy consultation


Incineration is a bad technology and we already have more capacity than genuinely residual feedstock. The Government should not be subsidising the incineration of what is in essence compostable material. The Government should be focussing on supporting the separate collection of food waste for anaerobic digestion and on introducing an incineration tax to promote reduction, re-use and recycling. Of course, these RO subsidies are not a big boon for the burner boys as most incinerators fail to use even a modicum of heat for CHP, and because gasification/pyrolysis technologies do not appear to work.
