Resource Recovery from Waste (RRfW) is a 5 year collaborative research programme engaging academia, industry, government and the general public to develop knowledge and tools to reduce pressure on natural resources and create value from wastes. At a recent RRfW conference, delegates were asked to identify drivers, barriers and actions for the adoption of resource recovery. These responses have been compiled and published – see https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0048969718331887 for the full article and https://rrfw.org.uk/2018/09/04/how-to-make-a-business-case-for-resource-recovery/ for a summary of the key findings. The final conference organised by the RRfW programme is due to take place in January 2019 – preliminary details are available at https://rrfw.org.uk/results/events/resource-recovery-from-waste-conference-2019/
