Veolia Responds to Energy-from-Waste Proposals

Veolia has responded to an appeal from cross-party think tank Policy Connect for the UK government to prioritise energy-from-waste policy to 2025.

The appeal is made in a report highlighting the carbon and financial benefits for taxpayers of energy-from-waste schemes, which can be accessed at

Richard Kirkman, Chief Technology and Innovation Officer for Veolia UK and Ireland, says: “Cutting carbon emissions and meeting our net zero targets must be central to all policies moving forward. We are excited to see this report recognising the importance of energy from waste facilities and district heating infrastructure in progressing the UK towards a green recovery.

“The future is a system of sustainable, hot, water circulating around the UK, with homes and businesses tapping off from it rather than a gas network. We have supported energy from waste and have grown our energy recovery facilities to create jobs, generate power and divert waste from landfill.

“We have millions of pounds of shovel ready renewable infrastructure where we are ready to press the button, and as long as the hurdles are removed to those developments and the right incentives are in place, we are confident that the economy will be primed for this green renewal.”
