Biofuel analysis could drive waste reduction in Wales

Sep 14 2010

Welsh authorities could be undertaking biofuel analysis in the years to come as they drive a transition to zero waste and biomass-based power generation.

According to environment minister Jane Davidson, Wales aims to have no net generation of waste by 2050.

Much of this elimination of landfill could be achieved through recycling, with a milestone in place to recycle 70 per cent of rubbish by 2025.

However, biofuel analysis could help to identify which household remnants are suitable for use in power generation.

Techniques including anaerobic digestion can turn waste into usable fuel as part of a sustainable approach to energy.

Ms Davidson has also outlined the expected energy mix that Wales is to have in place in the future.

Some 80 per cent of the country's power production is expected to come from wind and marine technologies, split equally across the two.

However, small-scale biomass and microgeneration facilities could prove important, as they are forecasted to account for the remaining fifth of the Welsh energy supply by 2025.
