  • Making a difference, together Over the last eight years, with WRAP’s support: Recycling rates in the UK have nearly quadrupled; Investment has been secured for 5.8 million tonnes extra reprocessing capacity; and 12 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent have been avoided.
  • Transcript

    • 1. ‘ Business Support for Manufacturing from WRAP Cymru’ Sustainable Manufacturing Liberty Stadium, Swansea September 23 rd 2010 Peter Webster Market Development Manager
    • 2. Aims of today’s discussion:
              • Introduce WRAP and WRAP Cymru – who we are, what we do (and why)
              • Outline our support for business – current and (potential) future products
    • 3. WRAP ….WHO?...What?...Why?:
              • WRAP – Waste and Resources Action Programme
              • Established in 2000, circa 230 staff, budget circa £70M (Defra, Devolved Administrations)
              • Programmes include construction, organics, manufacturing, retail, public sector
              • ‘ Not for Profit’ business
              • DEFINITELY not a ‘QUANGO’…. ’npish’
    • 4. WRAP Cymru…WHO?:
              • WRAP Cymru funded by WAG (circa £6M)
              • Sponsor Dept is DESH Waste Strategy Branch
              • Programme integrated with Envirowise, CEW, DE&T etc
              • 12 staff, Cardiff Bay Office, St Asaph, Pembrokeshire
    • 5.
      • WRAP’S VISION: A world without waste, where resources are used sustainably.
      WRAP’S MISSION: To help businesses and individuals reap the benefits of reducing waste, developing sustainable products and using resources in an efficient way.
    • 6. MAKING A DIFFERENCE, TOGETHER
      • Over the last eight years across the UK:
          • Recycling rates have nearly quadrupled.
          • Investment for 5.8 million tonnes extra reprocessing capacity.
          • 12 million tonnes of CO 2 equivalent avoided.
    • 7. Edinburgh Glasgow Cardiff Bristol
    • 8. Why bother?:
      • UK uses approx 680M tpa of material per annum, and wastes circa 50%
      • Resource Efficiency ‘quick wins’ could provide 10% of target reductions in GHG
      • Welsh Businesses could save £318M per annum
    • 9. Is More Reprocessing Infrastructure Needed? :
      • ‘ Proximity principle’ – reprocessing as close to source as practicable
      • Estimated at least 25% of Welsh source separated recyclate leaves Wales for reprocessing
      • Reprocessing has both environmental and economic benefits
      • WAG targets for 70% recycling by 2024/25 implies need for massive increase in reprocessing (80% more input?)
    • 10. Opportunities for the Reprocessing Sector? :
      • Increased supply and gate fees (landfill increasingly expensive)
      • Recyclate prices will rise, inevitably, as virgin materials do
      • Welsh business demand for recycled inputs will rise
      • Support is available
    • 11. ‘ Expertise – Based’ Business Support for the Reprocessing Sector from WRAP Cymru
    • 12. Helping Reprocessors to Grow:
      • WRAP Cymru can help with -
      • Business planning and finding funding
      • Identifying and exploiting market opportunities
      • Management support – ‘Interim Management’
      • Technical support
      • Intellectual Property protection
    • 13. ‘ Finance – Based’ Business Support for the Reprocessing Sector from WRAP Cymru
    • 14. Funding Based Products:
              • eQuip – ‘residual value guarantee scheme’
              • Capital Grants for Reprocessing Infrastructure
              • De minimis grant to support recycling by SMEs
              • De minimis grant to encourage use of recyclate in manufacturing
    • 15. Capital Grant Programme 2008 - 2011:
          • ‘ MAP’ funding – waste has to be 60% Commercial & Industrial (ie from business)
          • First of its kind for Wales – multi-round, multi sector competition but NOT a continuous scheme
          • 3 rounds throughout 2008-11
          • Approximately £3m available each round
          • Circa £6.5M grant lever in £19M investment, created 365k tpa reprocessing capacity
    • 16. Capital Grant Programme 2010 – 2015?:
          • Convergence Funded (Convergence Region only)
          • 6 + funding rounds from ‘late’ 2010
          • Circa £2m per round
          • Up to 45% intervention rate
          • WON’T have to have rigid C&I stipulation
          • Waste streams to be guided by ‘Towards Zero Waste’ and subsequent sector plans
          • Evaluation based on VFM in terms of tonnages diverted/CO2 saving and job creation
    • 17. De Minimis Grant Schemes – SME Support:
          • SME recycling rates comparatively low
          • Funding to establish new collection services with focus on SMEs
          • ‘ Bring Site’ infrastructure for SMEs
          • Capital + initial promotional costs
          • Typically up to £50K
          • Outputs are forecast quantities of material diverted from landfill
    • 18. De Minimis Grant Schemes – Recycled Content:
          • Focus on SME manufactures
          • To encourage substitution of virgin material inputs in product OR packaging
          • Any non-metallic materials
          • Capital costs + ‘relaunch’ promotional costs
          • Typically up to £50K
          • Outputs are forecast quantities of material diverted from landfill
    • 19. ‘ Joined up thinking’ on Incentives for (a?) Change:
      • SME Recycling Support – incentivises collection of recyclate from SMEs
      • Capital Grants for Reprocessors – to increase capacity in Wales to treat C&I waste, and produce high quality outputs
      • And now…….Support for increasing Recycled Content for Welsh manufacturing SMEs

    • 21. QUESTIONS? WHAT OTHER SUPPORT IS NEEDED?
