RDF Industry Group Appoints Andy Jones as Chair

RDF Industry Group Appoints Andy Jones as Chair

Totus' Managing Director Andy Jones, was appointed Chair of the RDF Industry Group in January 2021, having previously served as Vice Chair for five years.

The RDF Industry Group brings together organisations from across the European waste-derived fuel supply chain, providing a platform to address issues faced by the sector and to explore new opportunities. As Chair of the RDF Industry Group, Andy works collectively with members to represent the industry in providing a respected, informed, and expert voice.

The RDF Industry Group was established in January 2015 by environmental consultancy Eunomia (acting as Group secretariat), when a number of waste management companies wanted to come together to explore the opportunities surrounding the movement of waste-derived fuels across national borders within Europe. The Group currently has 34 members representing organisations across Europe.

Speaking of his role, Andy said;

"As both the industry and the Group mature, we’re at an important crossroads. The waste-derived fuel industry forms a vital and flexible treatment route for Europe’s waste. In particular, it offers an alternative to landfill – contributing to a potential reduction in CO2 emissions across the waste management supply chain. The industry also faces a number of challenges to the legitimate, environmentally-sound export of waste-derived fuels. We’re working collectively to keep standards high by sharing good practice and committing to the Group’s Code of Practice. Alongside this, the RDF Industry Group provides evidence-based information on the legal, environmental and economic rationales for the export of waste-derived fuels and engages with environmental regulators across Europe and the UK."
