Refuse-driven fuel market in England - call for evidence (Defra) - TSI response - May 2014

TSI response (PDF 98.8KB). Trading standards services are responsible for enforcing the Packaging (Essential Requirements) Regulations 2003 (PERR). If a new standard for refuse-derived fuel (RDF) were to be produced it would be likely to complement businesses' existing obligations under PERR and the existing standards for recoverable packaging - this potential combination could lead to keep more waste out of landfills and could in turn improve the quality and quantity of RDF available from businesses.
