Critique of WRATE added to UKWIN Knowledge Bank

Thanks to a contribution from veteran environmental campaigner and UKWIN Steering Group member Max Wallis, a thoughtful critique of the Waste and Resources Assessment Tool for the Environment (WRATE) has now been added to the growing pool of shared wisdom available to the anti-incineration / sustainable waste management community.

The latest addition to UKWIN’s Knowledge Bank is entitled Failures of WRATE modelling and is adapted from a critique of WRATE composed in response to the Welsh Waste Strategy.

According to the critique:

The Welsh Assembly Government was wrong to rely on WRATE for the Welsh Regional Waste Plans and for the 2009 review of the Wales Waste Strategy because as a modelling tool WRATE is badly flawed.
