Residual Waste Infrastructure Review (8th Issue)

22nd June 2015

by Adam Baddeley, Chris Cullen

The latest update to the Eunomia Residual Waste Infrastructure Review was issued on 22nd June 2015.

Eunomia’s Eighth Residual Waste Infrastructure Review, out today, shows that the UK remains on track to exceed the required level of residual waste treatment capacity by 2019/20 (or by 2018/19 when export of RDF is included).



The report draws upon data from local authorities’ annual WasteDataFlow returns, Defra’s latest C&I data and Eunomia’s in-house Facilities Database, which holds information on all residual treatment facilities in the UK (both operating and under development). Data is analysed on both a national and regional basis, to provide a detailed picture of where insufficient or excess capacity is anticipated.

The report focuses entirely on waste which is suitable for treatment by residual treatment plant, including incinerators, mechanical-biological treatment (MBT) facilities, and gasifiers, but excludes C&D and other unsuitable wastes which have been included in some other estimates of national capacity requirements.
