The Queensland State Government’s commitment to a waste strategy that includes an Energy from Waste Policy, along with recently introduced waste levy is expected to accelerate a number of opportunities in the state. Opportunities that include the development of Refuse derived fuels and the recovery of energy from wastes that cannot be reused or recycled and require technology to divert said waste from landfill.
