Government's Clean Growth Strategy targets landfill obsolescence by 2050

Government's Clean Growth Strategy targets landfill obsolescence by 2050

Environmental Services Association executive director Jacob Hayler said: "The Government's Clean Growth Strategy rightly recognises the impressive work of the waste and resource industry in helping the United Kingdom transition to a low carbon circular economy".

Technologies categorized as "less established" in CfD regulations include offshore wind; advanced conversion technologies, with or without combined-heat-and-power (CHP); anaerobic digestion, with or without CHP; dedicated biomass with CHP; wave; tidal stream; and geothermal, with or without CHP.

BEAMA released a statement confirming its support for the strategy, saying: "Compared to what has seemed to be a bit of a wasteland for new ideas in energy and buildings policy, the Clean Growth Strategy contains some exciting and ambitious plans for "cleaning up" our energy system, transport and buildings in the coming decades".

The government already announced that it will spend £2.5bn to support low carbon innovation from 2015 to 2021. It's as big a change as the move from the age of steam to the age of oil and Britain is showing the way.

"We also welcome the strategy's highlighting of the importance of best practice in AD. ADBA's pioneering, industry-led Best Practice Scheme, which will be launched in full later this year, will help support AD operators in meeting the highest environmental, health and safety, and operational standards".

"We welcome the Government's plans to go even further in reducing carbon emissions, and look forward to an ambitious resources and waste strategy with real, tangible measures that will help our members invest in greater resource efficiency and deliver clean economic growth for the United Kingdom plc".

The auction had also resulted in securing more than 3GW of renewable electricity to power up to 3.6 million homes.

"We welcome the government's plans to go even further in reducing carbon emissions, and look forward to an ambitious Resources and Waste Strategy with real, tangible measures that will help our members invest in greater resource efficiency and deliver clean economic growth for the United Kingdom plc".

Ambition for the United Kingdom to be zero avoidable waste economy by 2050.

Around £505m of the total funding will be used to support the commercialization of advanced clean energy technologies and processes. No other technology can make such a key contribution to so many different areas of the Clean Growth Strategy.
