Question

If you "expect incineration to play a decreasing role in the management of London's waste" (response to 3111 / 2013), why will you not strengthen your waste policies (3112 / 2013) to ensure that this is the case?

My Waste Strategy and London Plan policies apply an outcome-based approach achieving the greatest economic and environmental benefits, as opposed to prescribing waste management methods and technologies. The London Waste and Recycling Board supports the development of new and innovative waste infrastructure in London, including a gasification facility in Havering, a plastics reprocessing facility in Greenwich, and two anaerobic digestion facilities each in east and north London Loan repayments from LWARB-funded waste projects will then be used to invest in more waste facilities across London.
