Reality Check 2: Sustainability Insights - Biffa

UK residual waste management infrastructure: The continuing challenges and requirements 

In this report we talk about Reality Gaps in the plural. We update the 2015 EfW capacity gap analysis and we also take the debate wider, analysing the other essential component of residual waste management infrastructure: landfill, in its reduced but still necessary support role for non-combustible, non-recyclable residual waste management. In the  

final section we offer thoughts around future policy and how the UK should plan for its own waste management infrastructure needs in support of a successfully functioning economy, particularly now looking ahead to life outside the EU.
