Energy from Waste

Energy From Waste

The UK is recognised as a pioneer in Energy from Waste. Leaders such as SITA, Veolia, Viridor and FCC all have operations here. In 2013, the renewable energy market created 6.8 billion GBP in gross value. The UK market is maturing, and there is further demand for waste management infrastructure. This will require £3 to 9 billion GBP of investment. The market includes a variety of waste streams:

  • waste - mixed waste from either domestic premises or business
  • organic feedstock - such as food waste and green waste from food processing, farms, gardens and parks
  • commercial and industrial waste from a range of activities
  • construction and demolition waste including waste wood for biomass facilities

The next generation of energy from waste plants will be powered by experimental technologies that produce biofuels for vehicles from organic or plastic waste. Businesses based in the UK are developing these innovative new sources for biofuels, helping to cement our place as a fantastic base for international operations. There is also an estimated £1 billion pipeline of opportunities for community heating projects in the UK, which could be fulfilled by waste to energy and biomass projects.
