Energy from Waste 2014

EfW won’t plug the gap as a whole, but it has a major role to play. - Recycling & Waste World, 2014

Right across Europe, existing power stations are being converted to be able to use waste as a fuel instead of coal. In the UK around a fifth of power stations are likely to close by 2020. The government is coming under increasing pressure not just to keep energy prices low, but to keep the lights on. EfW won’t plug the gap as a whole, but it has a major role to play.
