A cross-sector letter has been sent to Chancellor Rishi Sunak, urging for a review of tax treatment for red diesel.
The letter, sent by the United Resource Operators Consortium (UROC) and signed by the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), states that the use of red diesel is ‘imperative’ for recycling with the majority of plant and machinery running off diesel powered engines. It says there is no ‘market ready kit’ using alternative fuels.
