  • Good morning I will talk to you a bit about PTZW to put Waste Data Management into context of PTZW Xx from the EA and xx from willm then drill down into some of the waste data issues The aim being that we all appreciate how important waste data is and collectively work to improve it
  • Firstly- What is PTZW? A partnership programme Founding partners EA, WRAP and SEEDA Other partners too Not least Env Centre Partnership launched in April 2008 as a 3 year programme until March 2011 In December 2009 the programme received £1m ERDF giving a total 3 year budget of £3m

  • Introduction to Pathway to Zero Waste

    1. 1. Paul Batty, Pathway to Zero Waste
    2. 2. What is PTZW? A partnership – three founding partners <ul><li>Other partners </li></ul><ul><li>Government ( DEFRA and GOSE) </li></ul><ul><li>Improvement and Efficiency South East (IESE) </li></ul><ul><li>National Industrial Symbiosis Programme (NISP) </li></ul><ul><li>South East Centre for the Built Environment (SECBE) </li></ul><ul><li>EnviroBusiness </li></ul><ul><li>Re Made SE </li></ul><ul><li>Environment Centre </li></ul>
    3. 3. Our aim To improve South East England’s economic and environmental performance and relieve pressure on its shrinking landfill capacity by:  reducing the amount of surplus and waste material generated by commercial and industrial activities  increasing the amount that is reused, recycled or converted to energy instead of being sent to landfill. This will be achieved by driving a mindset change from:
    4. 4. CD&E waste the initial focus And with good reason… 40% of all waste sent to landfill in South East England is CD&E waste
    5. 5. The true cost of waste £1m skip hire £8.3m materials cost £0.7m labour
    6. 6. <ul><li>Direct engagement with </li></ul><ul><li>supply chains on largest </li></ul><ul><li>projects in the region </li></ul><ul><li>Programme of ‘catalytic’ </li></ul><ul><li>projects to deliver change </li></ul><ul><li>throughout the South East – </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Holistic’ approach tackling key </li></ul><ul><li>issues simultaneously and </li></ul><ul><li>designed to deliver ‘quick wins </li></ul><ul><li>of lasting and significant impact’ </li></ul>Twin-track strategy
    7. 7. <ul><li>Creating demand : for reusable, recycled and recycled content </li></ul><ul><li>materials </li></ul><ul><li>Market development : to improve and increase trading in reusable, </li></ul><ul><li>recycled and recycled content materials </li></ul><ul><li>Infrastructure : accelerating the development of new recycling </li></ul><ul><li>facilities </li></ul><ul><li>Legislation and policy : working to ensure that the right political </li></ul><ul><li>and legal framework is in place to encourage resource efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Sharing best practice : promoting and encouraging widespread </li></ul><ul><li>adoption of best-in-class resource efficiency approaches </li></ul><ul><li>Data management : improving the quality, timeliness and availability </li></ul><ul><li>of data on waste flows in the region </li></ul>PTZW workstreams
    8. 8. <ul><li>160,000 tonnes diverted in first year of operation </li></ul><ul><li>Year two target 470,000 tonnes with associated benefits of: </li></ul><ul><ul><li> 14, 262 CO 2 avoided </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> 402,955 virgin material saved </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> £5m GVA added </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> £5m cost savings </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Catalytic programme forecast to divert additional 1.4m tonnes </li></ul>Delivering results
