Question reference: S6W-23662

  • Asked by: Brian Whittle, MSP for South Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
  • Date lodged: 7 December 2023
  • Current status: Answered by Patrick Harvie on 21 December 2023


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-22658 by Patrick Harvie on 16 November 2023, what economic modelling it has done to ensure that the recycling sector is prepared for the future potential demand of recycling of units and component parts of (a) gas boiler and (b) heat pumps and other clean heat systems.


The Scottish Government has not undertaken economic modelling on this particular point. We will continue to engage with the sector in ensuring it can respond to the increasing take up of clean heating systems over the next decades, including undertaking economic analysis if this is appropriate.
