Residual Waste Policy & Infrastructure lead

Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs

I lead the team within Defra that maintains oversight of infrastructure needed to deliver the major waste reforms set out in the government’s Resources & Waste Strategy. The team’s remit stretches from maximizing resource value and minimizing environmental impact of residual (i.e. black bag) waste through to understanding the investment needs to deliver higher recycling ambitions. Our interests include developing a better understanding of the role of technologies beyond mechanical recycling as we move to a circular economy and deliver Net Zero ambitions.
