Every fortnight the Burning Issue looks at different elements of the energy recovery sector, taking the starting point that while energy recovery has moved some waste out of landfill, where does the sector go from here?
This month for the first episode EWB editor Luke Walsh talks to Suez’s Dr Adam Read about the “new Suez” business, working with an ever-changing UK government and why those opposing energy recovery have the “moral high ground”.
This podcast covers:
Why moratoriums on EfW in Scotland and Wales won’t work as “they're not self-sufficient in the truest sense”
What the UK’s future capacity looks like and why the sector need to be “totally honest and transparent” about sites that may or may not be built
How long will it be until UK-based EfW sites are fitted with carbon capture technology
And why it is that consumers, and not energy recovery, need to change if stagnating recycling rates are ever to rise
