Waste Management and Recycling - UK - June 2018

“The UK continues to edge towards a more circular economy, marked by huge growth in energy-from-waste and the move away from landfill. However, energy-from-waste capacity remains someway off that required to ultimately replace landfill, while the UK continues to rely on EU exports to fulfill this deficit; a relationship that could face great upheaval in the coming years. In light of the air of uncertainty hanging over the industry, the UK could temporarily resort back to landfill, thereby slowing recent declines in its capacity.”
– Marco Amasanti, B2B Analyst
