The article presents the views of Colin Drummond, chief executive of Viridor Waste Management, on the potential of energy from waste. Founded in 1956 and acquired by South West Water in 1993, Viridor Waste Management is one of the top five waste companies in Great Britain, with profits growing by over 20% annually since 2000. Efforts to increase landfill taxes and the need to boost renewable energy output mean Drummond sees a major opportunity in energy from waste.
