Consultant WRc has appointed Mark Johnson to head its Waste and Resource Management area.
He joins WRc from Biffa where he was responsible for a number of different waste management facilities.
His background was initially within the minerals extraction industry before moving into waste management with RMC. He has a keen interest in Bioreactor Landfill technology and Landfill Mining, recently presenting a paper, entitled The Commercial Prospects for Landfill Mining, at the first International Landfill Mining Conference in London.
He will be responsible for WRc’s growing Waste department that has recently invested heavily in its Waste Laboratory capability. He said: “WRc has a number of key accounts within both the organic & inorganic sectors and I am looking to build on these relationships. I am very much looking forward to the challenges ahead for the waste & resource sector, we have a strong team of very skilled people at WRc, with an excellent track record, and I feel sure that we are very well placed to offer both industry and the regulators a truly independent consultancy service, which is underpinned by years of experience in waste characterisation, guidance development and helping customers improve their environmental compliance”.
“There is a whole new raft of infrastructure, comprising of many different and new technologies such as Anaerobic Digestion, Gasification and Pyrolisis, all capable of producing valuable green energy. As a highly respected and independent business, WRc is in an excellent position to assist, support and guide our customers in the implementation of these technologies”.
