The waste group brings together the KTN's activities to support new and emerging markets and new products for the UK's waste industries.
The waste theme focuses on both thermal and biological waste disposal operations for the generation of electricity, heat, gas and transport fuels. The theme includes the expansion of anaerobic digestion (AD), particularly the development of new markets and new products for the UK AD industry, and proactively linking industry with academic excellence. The emphasis for the waste resources area is on supporting and promoting new technologies that are able to maximise recovery of value from waste as a resource. The sector activities relate to municipal and commercial wastes and also to link with food and agriculture strategies in other KTN areas.
Our priority is to identify and support commercial opportunities for gaining value from the disposal of residual waste. The group helps companies who are engaged with the development of technologies or services to identify and benefit from these opportunities for waste disposal processes.
