Volume 489: debated on Tuesday 17 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what assessment he has made of the effect of the entry into administration of Bioganix on (a) present and (b) planned in-vessel composting facilities. (263089)

Information received from the DEFRA-funded Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) indicates that the former Bioganix site at Sharpness Docks in Gloucestershire was recently purchased from the administrators for an undisclosed sum by New Earth Solutions, which has announced that the site will continue in operation under the new ownership.

WRAP provides ongoing support to compost producers specifically through its Programme Support Managers and to all recycling and reprocessing business through its Regional Business Advisors and Business and Markets team (who have links to the investor community).
