Introducing EfW Net's weekly news bulletin. Providing you with a round-up of this weeks biggest news stories in the energy from waste sector: 

enfinium announces £200mn investment into CCUS in North Wales 

UK based EfW operator, enfinium, have announced plans to invest £200 million into carbon capture and storage technology at its Parc Adfer facility in Deeside, North Wales. The investment is part of enfinium's plans to invest a total £800 million into CCS technology, announced last December. 

And that's not the only news regarding CCS - as Encyclis joins the race to implement CCS technology at their Protos ERF plant in the North East

The past few weeks have seen a series of announcements made by EfW operators enfinium, Viridor and now Encyclis, about advancements in their CCS projects in North West England. But who do you think will get their first?

But while there is success in the development of CCS technology in the UK, other parts of the sector suffer, after Defra pauses permits for new waste incarceration plants

The minister of state for food, farming and fisheries, Sir Mark Spencer, has paused permits from 5 April until 24 May. The ESA has described the announcement as "unnecessary and unwelcome", especially during a time when many are calling for a restructuring of the UK's waste management. 

One of those calling for a restructure includes the Tyre Recovery Association (TRA)

The TRA have warned the UK could become the "environmental sick man of Europe" if the government doesn't update waste regulations soon.  

And amid worries about the UK's inability to deal with its own waste, the EA have announced that waste exports from the UK will now cost companies more money

Due to rising costs, the Environmental Agency has set up a new system that supports a 'fairer' regulatory order to charges on waste shipments. Changes also include stricter rules on where certain types of waste can go.
