Draft PPS18: Renewable Energy
Annex 1 Introduction: Other Relevant Wastes
D5. The main types of other wastes suitable for energy from waste schemes are as follows:
Sewage sludge: in 1999 (latest available figures) the UK produced 1.13million tonnes of sludge (dry solids). This corresponds to an average of about 20kg generated by each person and may be considered for combustion or other thermal processes for the disposal of this material.
Wood processing waste: small quantities of processed wood waste are produced by the furniture industries and can be classed as renewable, in their uncontaminated form.
