Detail of outcome
The response document summarises the main comments and the actions we’ll take. We will run another consultation on our proposed amendments to the standard rules permits for biowaste treatment.
Detail of feedback received
We had 11 responses to the consultation. This included 7 from site operators and 4 from trade associations. There were no comments from members of the public.
The Environment Agency wants to work with the biowaste treatment sector to contribute to the government’s:
- 25 Year Environment Plan
- Clean Growth Strategy
- Clean Air Strategy
We want to make sure that any amendments made to the permitting of biowaste facilities:
- benefits society
- reduces environmental risk
- are affordable
We’re asking for evidence to gather views about the permitting framework and some areas of the available guidance.
We’ll use your responses to help inform changes to our permit conditions and standard rules requirements.
