Technia Environment and Planning is celebrating a hat trick of successful consents for the development of potentially controversial waste transfer and recycling projects in and around Bridgend, South Wales, which may not have succeeded without the professional support of our plannning team.
As of the 20th November, an official definition has been published by Defra to clarify what is expected of waste described as Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF). Defra has worked closely with a range of operators with an interest in the RDF sector to develop the definition with the aim of helping the Environment Agency better regulate the RDF sector.
