An RDF Export Industry Group has been formed to explore and address issues surrounding RDF export from the UK
The Group benefits from Members including a number of major waste management contractors and operators both from the UK and across Europe, and provides a platform for the industry to communicate its work to third parties including the government and other key stakeholders in the form of reports, presentations or other communications material.
The Group, supported by its Secretariat, Eunomia Research & Consulting Limited, is currently developing a report that will include evidenced-based information which considers legal, environmental and economic issues relating to RDF export. The report is due to be published later in the summer, and will be presented to The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to consider within its current consultation on RDF.
The Group has already submitted a response to Defra’s consultation on waste crime, which was seeking views on enhancing enforcement powers and other measures to tackle waste crime and persistent poor performance in England and Wales.
