Viridor's Tim Rotheray on ESG, acquisitions, carbon capture and banning nitrous oxide

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 fifth episode of series two, the Burning Issue speaks to Tim Rotheray, director of ESG and external affairs at Viridor. 

The episode focuses on:

  • Forecasting a ban on nitrous oxide and Runcorn’s CCS bid getting backing

  • What else the company could be interested in buying after several EfW projects and Norway-based Quantafuel 

  • Why the Beddington EfW needs to expand as “there's not enough capacity to treat the residual waste generated in the area”

  • How interest around in the circular economy, waste, and recycling is “really growing in a very positive way”

  • Potential impact of the UK’s Electricity Generator Levy (EGL) on Viridor

  • Ramping up Viridor’s first plastic-recycling facility in Avonmouth
