Quotes

"As an industry we have worked closely with the Environment Agency and industry colleagues to develop approaches to safer storage standards but our work appears to have been jettisoned in favour of a set of proposals from those with no knowledge whatsoever of our industry, commitment to regional employment or to better sustainability."
Gardiner suggested that a "Stern Style Review’ was needed to fully understand and articulate the impacts of resource costs and their volatility, and more importantly the costs of inaction."
However, the August 2012 Guidance on the Legal Definition of Waste and its Applications states that materials "used or marketed or is being reused for the same purpose for which it was originally conceived is likely not to be waste."
"We had throwaway economics in the past, but that disposable society simply isn't sustainable in the twenty-first century. Less than half of all the stuff we throw away each year is recycled and turned back into something useful, despite prices for raw materials rising across the world. Global food prices have roughly doubled since the beginning of the century, metal prices have trebled, and energy prices quadrupled. These trends look likely to continue as emerging economies expand and the world population grows to 9 billion by 2050."
