The EA has now told us Biffa conceded in open court it had exported more than 340,000 nappies in the waste it claimed was mixed paper. The EA also found contaminants that hadn't been declared including bags of excrement, clothing, textiles and electrical items.

Not long ago Serco said it was getting out of the waste and recycling business - after a change of heart it is now it is taking over business from Veolia.

Biffa points the finger at the Environment Agency: “Throughout this case the EA has accused Biffa of failing to meet standards that it has repeatedly failed to specify through guidance.”

Just had a statement from Biffa strenuously denying any fault and blaming the Environment Agency of failing to specify export standards. Story up soon.

At last - researchers make their conclusion in full report first slated for 2014. Although it shows EfW is safe, there's enough for anti-incineration campaigners to latch on to, one suspects.

The prospect of Boris Johnson as prime minister has alarmed some within the sector and will Gove and Coffey be leaving Defra before too long? The rocky road just got rockier.

Coffey has dismissed this article as 'A right load of nonsense'. What does our industry think of Johnson's environmental credentials? He has visited some recyclers on one hand, but spread a falsehood about the EU banning teabags from compost on the other.

"Fiddling around the edges of the plastic pollution problem by banning straws simply doesn’t cut it," says Greenpeace.

Seems like Kier is getting serious about dropping out of the waste and recycling market.

France, on the other hand, is pressing ahead with a very fast and thorough legislative programme. Not 'held back' by the EU at all, as Gove and his fellow Brexiteers keep intimating.

Seems there'll be a lot of environmental concerns if Johnson wins. Would be interesting to hear what thinks about this story:

Resources minister doesn't back her boss Michael Gove for the top spot. Will this cause any friction at Defra?

What does the shadow waste and recycling minister think of the Government's response to the EAC's Fixing Fashion report?

With Gove looking to leave his job at Defra, what has he actually achieved? A ban on some tiny plastic waste streams, such as straws, and a host of non-binding voluntary schemes. Will his promise of real legislation come to fruition under the next regime?

Tough interview. All markets are prone to irrational booms and busts. Adding a 'middle' layer via PRNs makes it even more difficult to track. Whether Adam Smith's 'invisible hand' eventually guides the market to the right destination is debatable.
