No quality standards in MRF code says Defra


The rebalancing of the PRN and PERN will be the deciding factor in the debate over quality. If it becomes more economically viable to 'supply' the UK reprocessing sector, the Waste Management Companies will ensure that their MRFs produce high quality recycled materials. If it continues to make more economical sense to drive PERN generating tonnage through their plants to meet the lower export grade, then why change. The one thing Defra could do is urgently ammend the PRN/PERN system, quality must 'pay'. That is what drives a market.
