Asked by: Maurice Golden, North East Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 22 December 2021

Question

To ask the Scottish Government how many times since 1 September 2021 (a) Ministers, (b) Scottish Government officials, (c) Zero Waste Scotland and (d) SEPA have met with representatives of the incineration industry.

Current status: Answered by Lorna Slater on 12 January 2022


Answer

Representatives from the waste industry may represent multiple areas of the waste sector. For example, companies may operate both incineration and recycling facilities, and trade bodies represent companies which operate across the waste sector.

The information below, therefore, represents the number of meetings with representatives from the waste industry where the intention was to discuss incineration, or topics related to incineration (e.g. carbon capture and storage from energy from waste facilities) in at least part of the meeting.

Since 1 September 2021, (a) Ministers have met once and (b) Scottish Government officials have met twice with representatives from the waste industry to discuss incineration in at least part of the meeting.

Data on the number of times that (c) Zero Waste Scotland and (d) SEPA have met with representatives of the waste industry are not held centrally.
