Infrastructure Review

Eunomia publishes a review of residual waste treatment capacity and arisings on a twice-yearly basis. The report is free to download.

Since Eunomia began producing its infrastructure review five years ago, the residual waste market has transformed from one whose geography was largely defined by a country’s borders to one that has become truly European in nature. Significant tonnages of refuse derived fuel (RDF) and solid recovered fuel (SRF) are now moving across national boundaries. In the UK, for example, the export of RDF and SRF has grown from 250,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) in 2011 to 3.4 million tpa in 2015.

Our infrastructure review originally focused on the UK market, but for the 10th Issue of the report, we considered the balance of supply and demand across a wider group of an additional 10 European countries.

The report has been downloaded by a range of different types of organisation, including:

  • Financial institutions, including lenders and private equity funds;
  • Technology providers, based both in the UK and overseas;
  • Project developers, including land-owners and property development companies;
  • Waste management companies offering collection, treatment and disposal service;
  • Utility companies;
  • Local authorities; and
  • Policy makers.

The report will be of interest to developers and prospective funders of residual waste infrastructure, such as incinerators and MBT plants, and can help to identify areas across the cluster where opportunities for investment exist. We are also able to provide bespoke assessments specific to a particular site, based on the comprehensive information we hold.
