Investors’ appetite for waste projects on the rise

(25 February 2014)

Alon Laniado, director at Eternity Capital, a group that provides funding to recycling and energy from waste, told MRW that the UK AD sector had reached a level of maturity sufficient to attract a growing number of investors.

Laniado said an increasing amount of investment opportunities would come from small and new companies putting forward local projects.

Investors working in partnership with new companies have also become more proactive in shaping some of the features of waste deals, for example by helping the management teams to negotiate construction and feedstock contracts.

“We are not looking for a team that has everything ready, but a project that has the potential to be good and we can help them to deliver it,” he said.
