The chassis and vehicle manufacturing industry is undergoing a period of growth and reorganisation which should result in even more choice in the specialised waste sector for road fleet operators and transport managers.

A year shy of the Climate Change Levy, and the Chancellor is handing back £1,000m of revenue. Andrew Warren on sticks and carrots.
In with the old
Activated carbon is defined as a microporous adsorbent made from a carbonaceous material. Simply put, it appears solid, but is actually a network of inter-linked fissures and pores with an extremely high internal surface area - around 1,000m2/g. Camfil's Dr Chris Ecob puts carbon - an old material with a new future - under the microscope.

Nicholas Davey, Senior Consultant at Stanger Science & Environment (SSE), examines the impact on, and value to, industry.
