Industry representatives have published the first Refuse Derived Fuel Code of Practice (CoP) for the UK.

Launched at the House of Commons, the guidelines will clarify rules around RDF and outline good practice recommendations aimed to combat risks such as waste abandonment, nuisance, fires and illegal export.

The group hope it will increase the confidence of customers and regulators in processes and products.

When putting together the CoP, organisations from across the supply chain were consulted, along with the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra), the Environment Agency (EA) and the Food Standards Agency.

Guidelines were written by RDF Industry Group secretariat Eunomia Research & Consulting.

Gavin Graveson, chair of the RDF Industry Group, which helped launch the report, said: “We hope that the CoP will allow members to set the standard as legitimate operators from the rest of the market.

“The Group has developed a logo that members can display so they can be recognised by those operating in the RDF export supply chain.”

The RDF Industry Group is made up of 26 members including RDF producers, exporters and logistics organisations.
