ESA Report Launch: Energy for the Circular Economy: an overview of Energy from Waste in the UK

6th June 2018
1-3pm

Produced by the Environmental Services Association, this report looks into the opportunities Energy from Waste presents in the context of the Circular Economy and the government's upcoming Resources and Waste Strategy.

About the report

It now looks likely that the UK will adopt the EU Circular Economy recycling targets, but will it put in place the policies and funding to ensure they are achieved? Defra’s forthcoming Resources and Waste Strategy will help answer this question, but it must also articulate the Government’s intention for how to deal with the waste left over after recycling.

The Resources and Waste Management Industry has a clear view. Energy from Waste (EfW) is the best option for treating our residual waste after economically recyclable materials have been collected.

This report from the Environmental Services Association provides an overview of EfW and its role in the circular economy. It takes a look at what we have now in the UK and looks forward to where the sector is heading. It makes some key asks of Government that would enable EfW to deliver even greater benefits to the environment and the economy, whilst supporting the UK’s recycling ambitions.
