Renewable Energy: Fuel Oil

Volume 506: debated on Thursday 4 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what recent discussions his Department has had with representatives of the waste oil regeneration industry; and if he will make a statement. (319845)

We continue to maintain regular contact with the waste oil industry on a variety of issues affecting the management of waste oil.

Representatives of the waste oil processing industry are members of the Stakeholder Group relating to the transposition of the revised Waste Framework Directive (2008/98/EC), including the provisions in Article 4 on the waste hierarchy and Article 21 on waste oils. They were also involved in the Hazardous Waste Steering Group, which helped advise on proposals for a Strategy for Hazardous Waste Management in England.

The Hazardous Waste Steering Group and the Waste Framework Stakeholder Group last met on 29 September and 11 November 2009 respectively.
