Details

This report has its genesis in response to recommendation 4 of the Biomass Task Force Report to Government, published in October 2005, as follows:

“The Government should set up a strategic group within the Waste Implementation Programme to take forward the development of wood waste as an energy source. This group should include representation from the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), given its knowledge of the recycling industry and expertise in industry development.”

More recently, waste wood was identified as a priority material for action in the Waste Strategy for England 2007, which outlined the Government’s intention to facilitate greater recovery of energy from waste wood.

The purpose of this report is to provide salient market information to progress the development of wood waste as an energy source.
