Peer Reviews

 I think it is an excellent primer on the Waste to Energy and Refuse Derived Fuel markets. It describes the fragmented and at times nascent nature of the market, but it also navigates the options and variables to provide an initial path to acceptance, feasibility and ultimately profitability. 

Tony Georgis, Senior Consultant, Water & Power Business Group, Halcrow

 Captures a wide spectrum of market issues and is a useful snapshot of the North American market. It is also a roadmap for potential investors to avoid the pitfalls. 

Charlie Forbes, Deputy Director for Solid Waste Management, Fairfax Country

 A well written and informative report which analyses a vast and difficult to navigate nascent sector. This in combination with the detailed case studies would be valuable to those seeking proof of viability of investing in renewable waste
