The export of waste, mainly in the form of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) from the UK to the Netherlands has been in de news recently. Whilst export of RDF might seem like single way traffic, potentially without perceived benefits for the UK, it need not be. Both countries have now independently commissioned blue print reports on the management of waste and resources; in the UK that is the APSRGs â€˜Exporting Opportunitiesâ€™ and in the Netherlands â€˜Van Afval Naar Grondstofâ€™ (From Waste To Resource).
In the light of these developments we are organising the first Exploratory Anglo-Dutch Round Table on Waste Management Synergies in London on 15 September. This will be the day before the RWM/CIWM show takes place in Birmingham. The Round Table is ideally placed to discuss the many bi-national synergies that have been identified from the blue print Â reports and brings together Government, Trade Bodies and Industry to explore mutual benefits. You can view the detailed programme here.
This event is by invitation only. For more information contact the Economic Section on firstname.lastname@example.org
