Sustainable Waste Management & the Impact of Dirty Plastics and Bioplastics in OFMSW on Efficient Energy Recovery

Sustainable waste management is the holy grail of the concept of the circular economy. Unless the waste industry can achieve that on a global scale, a truly sustainable world is unachievable. It’s crucial to comprehend how the effectiveness of an MRF or ERF in achieving the clean extraction of plastics and bioplastics from the OFMSW […]

A Failed Energos Vision: The Story of the Derby MSW Gasification Project

This salutary story began when one of the country’s biggest suppliers of energy-from-waste technology at that time, Energos, went into administration due to problems with earlier projects. There is nothing wrong with the concept of the combustion technology known as gasification. But, the translation of the concept into reality in the UK has so far […]

First Use of Biomethane for Transport Fuel – 1st UK Biobus – 2008 Camden Council, London

The historic first use of biomethane (now known as rCNG) in a council vehicle in the UK was in the London Borough of Camden. The fuel is now increasingly used for powering buses. The main reason for using it is its comparatively clean burning characteristics, which means fewer exhaust fumes and lower air pollution, making […]

UK Energy Security - 5 Ways to Use Waste

UK Energy Security – 5 Ways to Use Waste to Create Energy in the UK

UK Energy Security is woefully inadequate and the consensus is that we need to generate more energy in the UK, so why not use our waste to generate more energy? The UK needs urgent action, and not just be looking to use energy from waste as a way to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. It’s […]

Common Services Offered By Solar Companies in the Fight for GHG Reduction

The common services offered by Solar Companies matter more than you might think. Consider for a moment what solar energy can do for all nations in the fight against climate change. It’s massive. Right! But there is a tendency to think of solar panels as the be-all and end-all. In fact, a solar panel is […]

Thumbnail shows dramatically the effect of landfill gas as a greenhouse gas.

The AD Process Which Makes Biogas Plus Landfill Diversion

The AD Process is the way biogas is produced. The “Anaerobic Digestion Process” to give it its full name, is simply rotting or composting in the absence of air. It can be a form of Waste Management, but most importantly it produces biogas. Biogas used wisely produces renewable energy, natural fertiliser, biomethane. It is a […]

New Battery designs are one predicted renewable energy trend of 2019.

Renewable Energy Trends Of 2019

There are many exciting developments in the renewable energy trends of 2019! The adoption of renewable energy is proceeding at least as rapidly as was hoped globally. That’s good news for decarbonising the globe, but within that overall picture there’s a great deal more of interest. Read-on to find out more about solar panel advances, […]

Energy from Waste and Incineration – What Could be Better?

Energy from Waste and Incineration is good. It is hard to imagine any objection to using energy which would have been lost if it had been placed in a landfill. But…
