FoE Report May Provide Waste Data Which Assists in Designing AD Plants

FoE has Published Residual Waste Research Which Estimates Future Waste Composition:

Friends of the Earth have published a report looking at what materials are likely to be left in residual household waste after extensive recycling has taken place. This attempts to predict how waste will change as the UK adopts much improved recycling practices, as required by EU Regulations.

The report identified 14 significant residual wastes/material types from a 'hypothetical' capture rate scenario and 26 from a 'practical' capture rate scenario.

The results will help develop policies to remove the materials from the waste stream. This data may be useful in designing the Anaerobic Digestion Plants of the future. More...
