Draft PPS18: Renewable Energy
Annex 1 Introduction: Business Waste
Non-hazardous industrial and commercial waste arisings in the UK have been estimated to be around 25 million tonnes per year, consisting mostly of paper, cardboard, wood and plastics. The disposal route for the bulk of this waste is landfill, although a small amount is incinerated along with MSW. In general, non-hazardous business waste can be preprocessed in similar ways to MSW to enable combustion using a range of technologies.
