  • The UK paves the way for energy recovery from biomass and waste

    According to the UK Waste Strategy landfilling waste is the worst environmental option. The methane it produces is a potent greenhouse gas, 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Consequently, the Landfill Directive calls for a 50 percent reduction of the biodegradable municipal waste that is dumped at increasing costs. Energy recovery from biomass and waste is going to play an important role ...
