NWRIC CEO Week in Review 26 March

first_imgNWRIC CEO Week in Review 26 March NWRIC Series: Harmonisation of Regulations across the states – waste dataA focus on the standardisation of national waste data is the first topic in our series on the importance of regulation harmonisation in the waste and resource recovery sector.National Waste and Recycling Industry Council (NWRIC) CEO Rose Read said there were currently significant inconsistencies in data collection, reporting and even definitions across Australia’s states and territories which needed addressing.“NWRIC is supportive of a national standard for data and reporting in the waste and resource recovery sector. At present there are different definitions, classifications, scopes, procedures, and timeframes operating which creates complexities and uncertainty in collating key information on waste, such as the National Waste Report.“These inconsistencies also impact businesses working across jurisdictions, increasing costs and time needed to align with individual state and territory data requirements,” said Ms Read.The National Waste Policy Action plan includes items that focus on achieving a better, more nationally harmonised approach to waste data, and specifically a commitment to‘Implement agreed national data and reporting improvements, harmonised data classifications and definitions for reporting, and sharing arrangements across jurisdictions, by 2022.’Ms Read said that accurate waste data is critical in guiding investment to grow the sector as well as benchmarking progress towards the National Waste Policy Action Plan targets, including the 80% average recovery rate from all waste streams by 2030.“The Action Plan is in place, however with the current inconsistencies in data collection and reporting we don’t have an accurate measure of success.“One of the main issues we face is the different language and definitions being used in reporting. Confusion over the terms ‘resource recovery’ versus ‘recycling rates’ is just one example of potential misinterpretation and why we need to implement a national standard for waste data sooner rather than later.“Consistency in measurements being taken at key points along the landfill, incineration, energy recovery and material recovery processes is critical, as is ensuring transparent, easily accessible and timely reporting.”Ms Read said compliance by states and territories with any new national standard should not be voluntary, and that state and territories need to stick to the 2022 National Waste Policy Action Plan deadline.“When a standard is introduced, leaving it as voluntary will not ensure we achieve national consistency in data collection and reporting, and the $25 million being invested by the federal government’s data visualisation project will be wasted due to poor quality data.“The introduction of a national waste data standard represents a critical first step in addressing the many issues across the waste and resource recovery sector (landfill levies and management, end of waste protocols for example) where national harmonisation will enable the sector to operate more fairly and efficiently,” Ms Read said. /Public Release.

Since the trend of consolidation is and has historically been upward, fewer and fewer individuals or organizations control increasing shares of the mass media in our country.

Wigton workshop to offer updates on wind energy

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Wigton Wind Farms Limited is inviting Jamaicans interested in wind energy technology to a workshop scheduled for their new training centre, Rose Hill, Manchester on Tuesday February 1. General Manager, Earl Barrett, told JIS News that the workshop will bring participants up to date on wind power generation, wind turbines and establishing a utility type wind generation systems. “We will look at wind data study, the right selection of equipment, how you lay out a wind farm, the installation, the erection and what is involved in the operation and maintenance,” he said. The workshop will also be looking at advanced tools and surveillance and diagnostic performances. Mr. Barrett said that misconceptions in relation to wind energy need to be eliminated. He cautioned that high, sustainable wind, for example, is no guarantee for success, because the transmission lines could be too long. “People have come to Jamaica saying that they want to put up 200 MW on John Crow Mountain. Maybe there is a high wind regime there, but there are no transmission lines in close proximity to it. Things like those we will try to get across to people, so we cut down on people saying, why don’t you put a wind farm out here, or why don’t you put a wind farm out there,” he noted. Wigton Wind Farms Limited is a subsidiary of the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ), which falls under the Ministry of Energy and Mining      Mr. Barrett explained that part of the setting up of the farm was the mandated to develop a cadre of trained experts, locally and for the Caribbean region.  The workshop is being hosted in collaboration with Vestas Wind Systems Limited, one of the top three internationally ranked manufacturers of wind energy systems. Vestas is also the manufacturer and supplier of the wind turbines at the Wigton wind farm.
