OFT to study market for energy-from-waste
The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) announced on Friday 21 January that it will conduct a study into the market for the treatment of organic waste. It said the study will examine whether there are appropriate incentives in place for the efficient use of technologies, such as anaerobic digestion, for producing energy-from-waste. A final report is expected in July. The news was welcomed by the Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ABDA) as it said the UK needed to "make the most of organic waste" to help generate renewable energy, reduce landfill and counter climate change. ABDA chief executive Charlotte Morton said incentives to encourage investment in energy-to-waste technologies would support the government targets for waste, energy and climate change.
