Indaver's John Ahern on planning struggles, nearly 30 years in the sector, and why he'd do it all over again

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?

In this third episode of series two, the Burning Issue speaks to John Ahern of Indaver with a focus on the company’s work in Ireland and its relatively recent expansion into the UK. 

The episode focuses on:

  • The Rivenhall EfW’s ongoing planning work

  • Getting the company’s first UK-based facility operational 

  • Plans for carbon capture 

  • Biogas-production remains on the cards if food-waste policies back it 

  • And why the UK is one of the “good place” to operate in term of planning policies
