structure of presentation
Structure of Presentation
  • What are the ‘New Waste Technologies’?
  • Why are we addressing these Technologies?
  • What is the Defra New Technologies Programme?
  • Local Authority Supporter programme
  • New Technologies Demonstrator programme
  • Waste Technology Data Centre
  • Technologies Research and Innovation Fund
  • Where do I get the information?
what are the new waste technologies
What are the ‘New Waste Technologies?’
  • New to the UK
  • New to the municipal waste sector
  • Near market technologies (with the exception of the R&D programme)
  • Not necessarily New
  • Examples of the key new technologies
    • Aerobic and Anaerobic Biological Treatment
    • Mechanical – Biological Treatment / Pre-treatment
    • Other Refuse Derived Fuel or material preparation systems
    • Pyrolysis / Gasification / other Advanced Thermal Treatment
    • Autoclaving
why are we addressing these technologies
Why are we addressing these Technologies?
  • Landfill Directive
  • Waste Not Want Not – Waste Implementation Programme
  • Focus on the diversion of BMW
  • Not Incineration (although this will be included in the Data Centre)
  • These technologies will struggle to develop without proven operational experience
  • There are perception, planning, contractual, regulatory, financial and operational risks
  • This programme aims to address some of these barriers
what is the defra new technologies programme
What is the Defra New Technologies Programme?
  • Comprises four elements:-
    • Local Authority Supporter programme, managed by Enviros
    • New Technologies Demonstrator programme, managed by RPS
    • Waste Technology Data Centre, managed by the Environment Agency
    • Technologies Research and Innovation Fund (TRIF), managed by the Waste Implementation Programme (Defra)
  • The ultimate aim is to make a contribution to the diversion of BMW going to landfill through the removal of barriers to the development of appropriate new technologies

  • Technology specific case studies, independently audited
  • Due to have 30 technologies this year a further 30 next year
  • Does include non – novel technologies such as Energy from Waste
  • Will be hosted within the EA website
  • Is due to be launched in June
  • Demonstration of the Data Centre at the Regional Launch events
technology research innovation fund
Technology Research & Innovation Fund
  • TRIF
  • Aim to fund research in support of new technologies and processes that will help to meet the obligations of the Landfill Directive
  • For technologies still at the research / desk study stage
  • £2m allocated
  • 46 Expressions of Interest have been received
  • Short listed bidders to submit full proposals by 1st June
